Abstract:

Our Graduate Training Program in Breast Cancer Biology and Therapy is a multidisciplinary approach focused on an important disease. The specific goals of the Program are 1 to recruit qualified predoctoral students to breast cancer related research 2 to educate students in the fundamental principles of breast cancer pathobiology and therapy 3 to monitor and evaluate the progress of the enrolled students and mentor them in their future career choices 4 to organize program activities, such as Seminar Series and Journal Clubs, for increased interaction of the student trainees with postdoctoral fellows and faculty interested in breast cancer. We have completed the first year of the training program in which we have closely followed our specific goals. Six students from five disciplines have completed the first year of support. They have all made satisfactory progress illustrated by their publication record. One student has graduated and accepted a research position in the field of breast cancer. They have all actively participated in the Program activities. All continuing students were granted the second year support
