Abstract:

The training grant goals are to provide a broad range of opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in general clinical and basic science breast cancer research under the mentorship of experienced physician scientists in an academic institution. In the third year of the training grant, from May to August of 2005, 5 undergraduate students participated in original clinical or basic science research projects in the Department of Radiation Oncology. The students met or exceeded their expected goals of learning the principles of research, completing data collection and proceeding to analysis of the results. All students presented their research results at a minsymposium for the departmental staff and faculty. The quality of applicants was high and their performance on their research projects was excellent. Three projects have been submitted to national research meetings. Other projects are in press or manuscripts are in preparation.
