Abstract:

The USAMRMC-sponsored Breast Cancer Predoctoral Training Program at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine is completing its fourth and final year with six students currently supported. The training program has served the dual function of encouraging the predoctoral students to focus on the issues of breast cancer in their research and training and at the same time has served as a focal point to bring various Mount Sinai faculty together to stimulate collaborations and research in the area of breast cancer. Support for a given student was limited to a two year period. This strategy encouraged the widest participation in the program and made it possible to support students whose preceptors hold faculty appointments in six different departmentscenters within the medical school. The elements of the training program were designed to educate the students concerning important questions in breast cancer research and to stimulate pursuit of careers that involve research into the underlying mechanisms responsible for human breast cancer.
