Abstract : Objective: To draw together in a common environment doctoral students from different basic science disciplines and provide them with a strong multidisciplinary background in breast cancer research. Approach: (1) Provide future basic scientists (predoctoral students) in a given discipline (e.g., physiology, biochemistry, etc.) a stable multidisciplinary foundation from which to develop cutting edge research in breast diseases, resulting in a dissertation dealing with a specific breast cancer research topic. (2) From these doctoral (Ph.D.) students, develop a cadre of postdoctoral fellows who will devote their entire professional careers to the field of breast cancer research and will be able to generate their own funding through competitive grants and contracts. It is expected that this group of researchers will swiftly and effectively provide translational (i.e., clinically relevant) bench research results into the clinical arena.
