Abstract : This report summarizes activities during the second year of a four year predoctoral research training program in biopsychosocial aspects of breast cancer. Three research trainees were supported during the initial year of the training program. One of these trainees was supported during the first year of the training program while the remaining two were new appointees. Research training was provided by a multidisciplinary faculty of six. A monthly meeting of program trainees and faculty was held to facilitate oversight of trainee research activities and discussion of breast-cancer related research. Trainees participated in a variety of group and individual research projects related to breast cancer under the supervision of program faculty. Trainees participated in all phases of the research enterprise including protocol development, obtaining approval for use of human subjects, data collection, data preparation, entry, and analysis, and manuscript preparation. Research activities conducted during the second year of the training program centered around the University of Kentucky Multidisciplinary Breast Care Center. However a foundation was developed for research activities to be expanded to include projects involving the bone marrow transplant program and the hereditary breast and ovarian cancer clinic at the University of Kentucky.
