Abstract : The three campuses of the Mayo Graduate School provide an advanced clinical and research training environment for conducting an integrated. multidisciplinary, predoctoral training program based in the study of cell and molecular biology of breast cancer. Thirty-two full-time faculty members currently participate in Mayo's didactic tumor biology training curriculum which supports the training of postdoctoral trainees in NCI sponsored postdoctoral training programs at Mayo. This strong multidisciplinary tumor biology curriculum provides the foundation for the didactic component of a specialized predoctoral training program in breast cancer. The development of this new training program has been facilitated through the development of two new graduate courses in the cell and molecular biology of breast cancer, as well as through the initiation of a new journal club and an intramural research workshop for trainees in this training program. The research training component of this new predoctoral track is laboratory-based and is fostered by Mayo's highly competitive and interdisciplinary research environment and by the heightened interest in breast cancer research stimulated through the recent development of the Mayo Women's Cancer Program within the Mayo Cancer Center.
