HOUSTON Recognized for its translational approach to cancer care bringing research findings from the lab to patient care The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center announced today (Oct. 13) that it has received more than $34 million in prestigious SPORE grants from the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Three new Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grants totaling $12.75 million for leukemia, $10.4 million for endometrial and $4.7 million for pancreatic cancer research have been awarded to the institution. M. D. Anderson also received $6.5 million in renewed funding for its lung cancer SPORE, first awarded in 1996. All four grants have been awarded to the institution in the last quarter.

With the addition of the new, five-year grants, M. D. Anderson now holds a total of eight NCI-sponsored SPOREs and ranks first in the number of grants received nationwide by the NCI.

M. D. Anderson's eight SPORE grants over the past seven years total more than $88 million. Before the new $6.5 million renewed award to M. D. Anderson, the grant for lung cancer research was originally given jointly to M. D. Anderson and the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas in 1996. A second, $10 million SPORE grant for ovarian cancer research was awarded in 1999. In 2001, M. D.
