Abstract:

The overall objective of this training program is to provide an opportunity for undergraduate students to spend the summer to get exposure to concepts of breast cancer research. We proposed that the majority of these students will be from a guaranteed professional program admission GPPA class. We proposed six students to be divided amongst 7-8 faculty members working closely in the area of breast cancer. During the last summer we had introduced the program to the Honors college and GPPA program office. As mentioned in the application we already had three GPPA students working in various laboratories who continued during the summer months and we admitted two more students to the summer training program. The sixth one had dropped out. Six mentors, each selected one student. The students learned laboratory procedures and prepared a short report at the end of the summer. All faculty participants gave a short seminar on the concepts of their work as proposed. At the end of the summer the students discussed their accomplishments with the mentor and the PI. They all provided written overall evaluation of the program.
