Our Career Development Program during the past two years has supported the development of both clinical and translational researchers.

Some of those researchers, Michael Emanuele, Qing Zhang, and Katie Reeder-Hayes have been awarded Komen Catalyst Career Development Awards based upon their SPORE project support. This year, we have recruited and are adding Gaorav Gupta to our Career Development process. As well, we have chosen a new project from Dr. Carey Anders, who will perform NextGeneration sequencing on triple negative breast cancer brain metastases and the bioinformatics analysis of the sequencing data.

The following researchers have been supported by career development and developmental project budgets:
