Abstract:

The goal of the present proposal is to provide post-doctoral training opportunities in breast cancer research that focus on the role of microenvironment in mammary gland biology. Trainees will benefit from working in a dynamic interactive program under the guidance of the LBNL mentors to investigate the intersection of hormone action, growth factor activity and extracellular matrix remodeling during mammary gland development and carcinogenesis. In addition, trainees will be exposed to a variety of other topics related to breast cancer, as well as research ranging from molecular medicine to genomics, by their participation in working groups, lectures and scientific meetings with other Berkeley Lab and Bay Area researchers.
