MB&B 323
Spring 2013 not offered

Cancer is one of the biggest global health problems we face, even though we have made great strides in understanding the underlying mechanisms of the disease. To understand why cancer is still a huge threat, with all the progress that has been made, the basic science of this multifaceted disease will be examined with a focus on the genetic basis of cancer; the role carcinogens, genetics, and infectious diseases play in its development; the role of the immune system in controlling cancer and how it can be harnessed in new, novel treatments; the biochemistry of chemotherapies; and the basic biology behind suggested preventative strategies.
