BIOL 374 - Cancer Biology

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: BIOL 200; and BIOL 252 or BIOL 373
This course will provide a deeper understanding of the molecular, cellular and genetic basis of cancer. It will help to solidify students’ knowledge of cellular and molecular biology and will allow them to apply their general knowledge to a concrete medical problem. Emphasis will be placed on current experimental research in the field of cancer biology and its impact on the understanding of cancer. Using the problem of cancer as framework, this course will allow students to survey the most recent literature to gain a greater understanding of the genetic and environmental aspects to this complex disease. The goals are to provide a detailed introduction to modern cancer biology, with emphasis on molecular diagnosis, current research and treatments. Offered either semester. (CWRM)
