BIO456: Cancer cell biology

[Cr:4, Lc:4, Tt:0, Lb:0]

Course Outline The cancer cell biology course objective will be achieved through brief overview of biology of a cancer cell and through the in-depth discussion of two research papers each week. Initially, there will be lectures given on topics (mentioned below) which will be followed by extensive discussion of research articles that will be primarily driven by the course participants. The students will practice critical reading and discussion of scientific papers and learn to evaluate data and methodologies.
