Abstract:

The objective of the program is to establish at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio an in-depth training program in the Molecular Genetics of Breast Cancer. One goal of the program is to train highly qualified doctoral students in the genetic, cellular, and molecular basis of Breast Cancer. The training program, conducted within the Molecular Medicine Ph.D. Program, is administered by a select group of faculty whose research projects are intimately involved in breast cancer. An additional goal of the program is to promote synergistic interactions between the various laboratories engaged in breast cancer research. Breast cancer meetings, Molecular Medicine Minisymposia and a distinguished Seminar series are integral parts of the training program. The strength of the program is the quality of the Program faculty, and the interactive breast cancer research community. The faculty are studying breast cancers and their therapy, as well as fundamental mechanisms of cell growth and differentiation. Students supported by the training program had 22 peer-reviewed publications, a 400 increase over 1996. Based on the excellent progress of the training program, a proposal to the National Institutes of Health for continuation of the Program will be submitted June, 1998.
