The Career Development Program (CDP) will support the early careers of the most promising junior investigators. It will also recruit new senior investigators into translational breast cancer research. The program will provide tightly structured, multidisciplinary mentoring for junior faculty with great potential for developing independent programs in translational breast cancer research; however, exceptional senior faculty who demonstrate strong interest in developing such programs may also be eligible. Investigators may come from clinical or basic science backgrounds provided that their research aims are translational in nature.
