Welcome - Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer BIOC 4027   Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer
The multi-step nature of ‘carcinogenesis’ is the focus of this course. This course dissects the role of oncogenes, tumor suppressors, cell death and survival, differentiation, angiogenesis, metastasis, inflammation, and anticancer immunity in cancers. Major research techniques routinely used in cancer research are discussed to fully understand the process of cancer development, progression and persistence.
