Maciek S. Lesniak, MD (Co-Program Leader)
The Career Enhancement Program is a critical component of the Northwestern Brain Tumor SPORE, in that it ensures that there will be a continuous influx of talented investigators devoted to brain cancer research.
Developmental Research Program
Maciek S. Lesniak, MD (Program Leader)
David James, PhD (Co-Program Leader)
The Developmental Research Program (DRP) of the Northwestern Brain Tumor SPORE provides yearly funding to 3-4 projects that have promising translational potential. DRP projects that experience outstanding development may replace main projects that are not progressing, or the associated project investigators will be encouraged to secure independent funding in brain cancer research.
