BMS 665 Cancer Biology Journal Club (15 students, Fall, 1 credit) Coordinator

This seminar style class focuses on the molecular and cellular biology of cancer through review of current literature. This is a graduate level course, and basic knowledge of cancer biology (etiology, pathology,terminology, research models, techniques, etc) is assumed. The basic class format is the presentation and discussion of original research papers. Students are responsible for at least one assigned presentation during the semester and are expected to read all assigned papers prior to class each week. Class participation is mandatory.

BMS 622 Cancer Biology, (15-20 students, Spring, 3 credits). Coordinator

This lecture course presents an overview of the cancer development process at the cellular and molecular level, including regulatory networks involved in growth control and tissue organization and an introduction to animal, cell and molecular techniques for studying progression, treatment and prevention of cancer.

Objectives:

         To gain an appreciation of the complexity of the cancer development process at the cellular and molecular level.

         To provide students with an understanding of regulatory networks involved in growth control and tissue organization. This is primarily achieved through the study of changes observed when these networks are disturbed in cancer cells.

         To gain exposure to whole animal, cell culture and molecular techniques for studying progression, treatment and prevention of cancer.

         To develop fundamental concepts of cancer identification, etiology and epidemiology.

         To understand the cellular and molecular basis of current strategies for cancer prevention and treatment.
