Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer PATH 5027   Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This advanced course focuses on understanding the characteristic hallmarks of cancer, with special attention to cancer treatment in clinics. The multi-step nature of ‘carcinogenesis’ is the focus of this course. This course dissects the role of oncogenes, tumour suppressors, cell death and survival, differentiation, angiogenesis, metastasis, inflammation, and anti-cancer immunity in cancers. Major research techniques routinely used in cancer research are discussed to fully understand the process of cancer development, progression and persistence.
