The aims of this study are to identify the types and properties of telomerase producing cells within breast tumors, and further, to isolate these cells from breast tumors so that their biochemical and functional properties may be characterized. Through examining the role of telomerase in cancer, this project also fosters the education of the candidate through the interaction with several experts in breast cancer pathology, epidemiology, biostatistics, and clinical and basic research. The experiments involved require the interaction with professionals from several different fields of the biomedical sciences and the mastery of several challenging laboratory techniques. To date, all tasks as outlined in the Statement of Work, are on schedule. The research is in progress.
