Abstract : The purpose of this predoctoral and postdoctoral training program is to prepare clinical researchers who will impact the care of women with breast cancer. Under the two program directors, Drs. Ruth McCorkle and Michael DiGiovanna, the program has completed its fifth year. Over the entire training program, six predoctoral and five postdoctoral trainees have been funded. Breast cancer content has been included in the curriculum of the doctoral program. The postdoctoral program has been established within the School of Nursing and included in the bulletin and the School's website. Eleven new breast cancer researchers have been funded by this training grant. Seven breast cancer research studies have been implemented with subsequent funding. Six trainees have received national awards, over 54 presentation have been presented, 45 publications have been published, and 12 grants have been awarded to the trainees. The program has been sustained through an NIH, NlNR T32 institutional training grant. These program outcomes were presented at the DOD Era of Hope meeting in Philadelphia, PA in June 2005.
