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.
