Grant Details


DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant)
The American Cancer Society estimates that over 170,000 US citizens will
develop gastrointestinal (GI) cancer this year; 100,000 will die. Led by
cancers of the colon, esophagus and pancreas, GI cancers account for over 17
percent of US cancer deaths. The goal of this interdisciplinary Specialized
Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in GI Cancer at the Arizona Cancer
Center (ACC) is to prevent and cure GI cancers. The SPORE will approach this
goal through studies in prevention, genetics and therapeutics. In particular,
the SPORE will attack the poor survivability linked to delayed detection.
