A key feature of the SPORE is the inclusion of specialized COREs that interact with the research projects. The Pancreatic SPORE includes these Cores:
Core A - Administration
Provides support for personnel involved in the administration, scientific oversight and coordination, communication, budgetary oversight, and clerical functions associated with the SPORE Program.
Core B - Tissue Core
This resource is comprised of two components: a conventional tissue bank, and an organ harvest/rapid autopsy program.
Core C - Biostatistics
This core collaborates with SPORE investigators on study design to develop projects with appropriate statistical operating characteristics, provide a statistical analysis plan for each SPORE project.
