Abstract:

Year 04 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 or by individual grants. Eight different mentors were involved. In the four years of the program, 24 of the 42 participants have been women, which 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.
