Abstract : This training grant for 5 predoctoral students was designed to integrate students in diverse disciplines with a common interest in understanding breast cancer. The training features of this program are (1) a monthly journal club to facilitate the exchange of current information related to breast cancer research, (2) a yearly retreat to encourage interactions between trainees and investigators at Vanderbilt University interested in Breast Cancer research, and (3) a special seminar series involving a guest speaker prominent in the field of breast cancer research. Each of these goals were accomplished over the past year. Three trainees were supported for a second year and two new trainees were supported by this training grant; three different departments are represented. Seven abstracts, 5 publications, and 2 submitted manuscripts related to breast cancer resulted from this support.
