BIO 365 - Biology of Cancer


Instructor
Melonakos

The Biology of Cancer Seminar investigates the molecular basis of cancer through a study of the hallmarks of cancer, signal transduction pathways, cancer critical genes, and current therapeutic approaches. Seminal experiments in the field of cancer biology are discussed throughout. Students will discuss readings from the text and primary research papers daily, and develop the skills needed to present and lead the class discussion. A focused research paper on topics within the field of cancer biology will be a semester-long project.
