SPORE Career Enhancement Programs

The three SPOREs at Yale Cancer Center harnesses the strengths of academic cancer centers by bringing together experts in oncology, immunobiology, pharmacology, molecular biology, pathology, epidemiology, and addiction science to collaborate on projects.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) Center for Diversity in Cancer Research (DICR) Training aims to increase diversity and inclusion in the cancer workforce by providing training and support to students who are currently underrepresented in the health-science field because of race, ethnicity, gender, ability, or low socioeconomic status.

The DICR program’s first initiative is an internship program that targets URM undergraduate students to expose them to cancer research as a strategy to ultimately increase the number of URM people who enter the cancer research field. In June 2022, the ACS approved 12 institutions and 83 applicants for funding, including four students to work with members of Yale Cancer Center:
