This grant funded a Special Sabbatical for research in breast cancer for one year. There were two principle tasks in this grant the first was to localize a potential tumor suppressor gene on chromosome 16 and the second was to further develop the molecular biology skills of the investigator. The research project continues to be in progress as we are at the stage of the secondary screening of a normal breast cell cDNA library and are preparing to sequence the DNA. In addition to this project, two additional studies were initiated, evaluating the effects of estrogen and progesterone on breast cancer cells.
