NCI renews Fox Chase / Penn Ovarian Cancer 'SPORE' grant for a third 5-year term
Date:9/3/2009

PHILADELPHIA (September 3, 2009) National Cancer Institute (NCI) has renewed a $11.5 million Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer, which supports multidisciplinary research at Fox Chase Cancer Center and the University of Pennsylvania. First approved in 1999, this marks the third five-year term for the Fox Chase-Penn Ovarian SPORE.

"The SPORE program has always been a bold experiment in team science, and we are proud to see the progress of the Fox Chase-Penn SPORE recognized through this grant renewal," says Michael Seiden, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center and principal investigator of the Ovarian Cancer SPORE. George Coukos, M.D., from Penn and Andrew K Godwin, Ph.D., of Fox Chase, serve as co-principal investigators on this SPORE.

According to Seiden and his colleagues, the Fox Chase-Penn SPORE has generated many positive ripple effects across both NCI-designated Cancer Centers. Since the inception of the program, both Penn and Fox Chase have invested an additional $13.4 million in support of gynecological oncology clinical and research infrastructure. The SPORE has also served as an important career development for young investigators and an incubator for new lines of scientific inquiry. In the last five years, alone, Fox Chase-Penn SPORE research has generated over $10 million in related grants.

"We have been able to leverage the expertise gained through SPORE research to recruit and foster the talents of many young investigators over the last decade," Seiden says. "This in turn has led to the adoption of new techniques and technologies that have advanced the science of ovarian cancer and will we have every reason to anticipate advance clinical care, as well."

The Fox Chase-Penn SPORE focuses on three central concepts in ovarian cancer. The first is epigenetics, the study of modifications made to the human genome that influence
