Funding Opportunities

UC Pancreatic Cancer Consortium SPORE Projects

The UC Pancreatic Cancer Consortium submitted a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) application to the NCI in May 2020. While the infrastructure scored highly, reviewers were critical of the projects to varying degrees. The Consortium is planning another submission in September 2021 with new and/or revised projects.


SPORE projects must be translational with a laboratory component and a human application, and are typically collaborations between basic and clinical researchers. Project budgets are expected to be in the region of $200,000–$250,000/yr for 5 years, although projects on early detection, prevention, or population science can request up to an additional $120,000/yr.



UCPCC Collaborative Pilot Project Award

The UC Pancreatic Cancer Consortium will fund a one-year pilot to encourage collaboration between UC campuses, with the expectation that it will lead to submission of a major collaborative grant such as an NIH P01, multi-PI R01, or similar. One award will be given up to $150,000.
