Abstract:

The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute KCI is dedicated to training young scientists for careers in research. The intent of this application is to broaden the number of students that can participate in KCIs undergraduate summer training program by creating a focused program utilizing the established Breast Cancer Program of our Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is our intent to recruit promising undergraduate science majors, give them the opportunity to take part in breast cancer research and impress them with the excitement of contributing to the cureprevention of this dread disease. This summer research fellowship will reflect KCIs conviction that elucidation of the biological basis of human cancer and the application of results from basic research in the clinic requires knowledge and training in many disciplines including biochemistry, pathology, molecular biology, immunology, therapeutics, pharmacology and chemistry. The goal of this training program will be to develop within each student the approach to critical scientific thought needed to pursue independent research, stimulating the students desire for a future career in breast cancer research.
