The purpose of the UCLA SPORE in Prostate Cancer is to contribute significantly to progress in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of prostate cancer. These goals will be accomplished through multiple and diverse research projects, both in basic science and population-based research, which can be rapidly translated into clinical applications.
The over-arching goal of the SPORE is to rapidly translate laboratory discoveries to clinical applications. A major objective of the SPORE is to develop new avenues of prostate cancer research through support of developmental research programs and to identify and cultivate young investigators seeking a career in prostate cancer research.
