Abstract:

The objective of the program is to train highly qualified doctoral students in the genetic, cellular, and molecular basis of Breast Cancer. The training in Breast Cancer research that students obtain will provide the momentum and scientific expertise for future discoveries in this important field. 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 Distinguished Seminar Series are integral parts of the training program for students supported by the Breast Cancer Training Program. The major strengths of the program are the high quality of the Program faculty, and the interactive nature of the Breast Cancer research community in San Antonio. The program faculty are organized into four subprograms, which encompass scientists and physicians studying different aspects of breast cancer and cancer therapy, as well as fundamental mechanisms of cell growth, differentiation and molecular genetics. During the reporting period, research by the students supported by the training program resulted in the publication of 32 peer-reviewed articles.
