Abstract : The Breast Cancer Predoctoral Training Program (BCPTP) at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine has entered its third year. Four new students were added to the program, bringing to a total of six students who are funded by the training grant, and eight students who are currently actively involved in the BCPTP. The organization of a biweekly trainee luncheon series has stimulated discussion of issues relevant to breast cancer research among both trainees and faculty. The training program has served the dual function of encouraging the predoctoral students to focus on the issues of breast cancer in their research and training and at the same time has served as a focal point to bring various Mount Sinai faculty together to stimulate collaborations and research in the area of breast cancer.
