Abstract : The Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center is an NCI funded (2P30 CA60553-04) clinical cancer center. The Cancer Center has established a premier breast cancer program with significant strengths in both basic and clinical research. The US Army funded training grant "Molecular Biology of Breast Neoplasia" enables four predoctoral students and one postdoctoral trainee per year to be exposed to the latest concepts in the biology, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Members of the training program participate in a weekly Journal Club and a monthly breast cancer research meeting. Each trainee will present their research as a seminar during the upcoming year. The intense training received by the students will put them in an ideal position to pursue careers in breast cancer research to hopefully develop new strategies in the treatment and prevention of breast cancer.
