Wisconsin Prostate Cancer Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE)

Wisconsin Prostate SPORE

Welcome to the Wisconsin Prostate Cancer SPORE

University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, under the direction of Dr.’s David Jarrard and Douglas McNeel, have been designated as a Specialized Program of Research Excellence, or SPORE, by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for research initiatives to advance new prostate cancer treatments as of June 2023. 

The Wisconsin Prostate SPORE focuses on Prostate Cancer translational research, which means that the goals of each SPORE research project must link laboratory research (bench) to the clinic setting (bedside) and ultimately aim to improve overall outcome for patients with Prostate Cancer. The Wisconsin Prostate SPORE comprises three main translational research projects, three supporting cores, a Developmental Research Program (DRP) and a Career Enhancement Program (CEP).
