The basic, clinical, and population research proposed within the Yale SPORE in Lung Cancer aims to improve the overall survival rate of non-small cell lung cancer patients through the development of novel therapeutics and personal prevention strategies. These overall goals are supported by several research cores, which function to provide support to each of the projects within our Lung SPORE program.
Scientific oversight and evaluation, facilitation of communication and interaction as well as financial management are provided by the Administrative Core. Each project also benefits from the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core in the design of research studies and the analysis and interpretation of research data. The Biospecimen, Pathology and Genomics Core provides for and supports the biospecimen acquisition, processing and analysis needs of our lung SPORE research team.
