Biological Basis of Neoplasia
This course allows students to gain experience in applying the several disciplines which comprise cellular and molecular biology toward a deeper understanding of a complex biological problem: neoplastic change. The course consists of a series of lectures to introduce students to the major themes in research in the cellular and molecular biology of neoplastic change. They cover principal cancer phenotypes, oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, genetic instability and mutator phenotypes, loss of tissue homeostasis and senescence and chemical carcinogenesis. The lectures are supplemented by in-class student discussions of focus topics lead by a scientist working on the selected problem.
