Course Detail

BS3004 Cancer Biology and Therapy
Objectives
The course will survey the genes and gene products which control cellular proliferation, and the genetic changes that lead to the various stages of cancer. Learner will apply this information by studying real or imagined experiments and proposing hypotheses to explain the results. Learner will think broadly about the molecular mechanisms regulating cell function and how these are assessed experimentally. Learner will apply your understanding of the molecular mechanisms regulating cancer cells to understand how therapies can be developed to target cancer. Learning will be accomplished through a combination of traditional lectures, tutorials, online learning and lab practicals.
Outline
The major underlying mechanisms responsible for cancer.Examples of technologies and methods to study cancer and develop cancer therapies.
The major historical breakthroughs that led to a better understanding of cancer. The mechanism of action of several anti-cancer drugs
