Abstract:

The overall goal of Project INSPIRE is to provide continuum of opportunities including didactic and meaningful research experience and training in basic, biomedical, clinical andor population sciences research for promising undergraduate students enrolled at Florida A M University FAMU, who are at an important career-decision-making point, in a host institution such as the Moffitt Cancer Center MCC, with an established record of achievement in prostate cancer research, that will lead to attracting this group into careers that focus on prostate cancer research. The objectives outlined for this project will be completed in three years. As proposed, we recruited 3 students from FAMU during the summer of 2006, who were matched with their mentors and all completed the program as proposed. Four pilot projects completed by the interns in the program and research reports and 7 scholarly papers 1 to be presented at a National meeting have been presented at scientific meetings. All 4 students have demonstrated interest in graduate study to continue their work with prostate cancer.
