DHART SPORE Developmental Program Awards

The multi-institutional Developmental and Hyperactive Ras Tumor (DHART) SPORE focuses on improving the diagnosis and management of tumors arising in persons with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and other inherited "Rasopathy" syndromes through basic, translational, and clinical research. Support is now available through two of the DHART SPORE's developmental programs.

Career Development Program (CDP) Awards

The goals of the CDP are (1) to attract outstanding young basic scientists and clinical investigators to the field of NF1-associated tumor research; (2) to assist in the career development of these junior faculty; and, (3) to encourage collaborations between investigators which can lead to new ideas and directions in research related to tumors associated with NF1 mutations and can contribute to career development.

Developmental Research Program (DRP) Awards

The DRP supports innovative pilot projects to advance the diagnosis and treatment of early stage tumors and advanced cancers characterized by germline and somatic NF1 mutations. The DRP will accomplish this goal by funding rigorous translational research in the areas of population science, therapeutics, and mechanisms of disease and by facilitating collaborative interactions between DRP-funded scientists and other SPORE investigators.
