Abstract:

Year 2002 of the Undergraduate Training Program in Breast Cancer Research has been completed successfully. In addition to the eight students funded by this grant, two additional students were recruited and funded by the Dean of Pharmacy. Nine different mentors were involved. In the two years of the program thus far, 13 of the 22 participants have been women, who are underrepresented in the biomedical research community. Students carried out research in their mentors laboratories, attended a weekly journal club, attended a weekly seminar of guest speakers, presented a formal oral report on their work, and wrote a final report. Three grant submissions, one pending and two funded, have resulted in part from work sponsored by this program. Participants have been listed as coauthors thus far on two presentations at meetings. Two program participants thus far are enrolled in graduate school in the life sciences.
