The goal of the Career Development Award Program (CDAP) of the Yale SPORE in Skin Cancer is to enhance our capacity to develop a new cadre of investigative cutaneous oncologists and scientists committed to multidisciplinary studies investigating the relevance of biological discoveries in human skin cancer risk, prevention, diagnosis, prognosis or treatment, as well as to enhance and focus the careers of individuals who have already shown interest and promise in this field. Requested funding for this component of the SPORE includes $70,000 per year with $50,000 in

Public Health Relevance

The Yale SPORE in Skin Cancer's Career Development Award Program has been designed to foster the development of the next generation of physician-scientists in the arena of human cutaneous malignancies. There has been a documented decrease over the past 20+ years in the numbers of individuals choosing such careers, and this program is aimed at helping to correct this problem.
