BIO404: Cancer Biology
Free Closed [?]
Cancer has existed among humans since humans themselves began and has been a subject of urgent interest from very early in our history. What we call “cancer” consists of a number of different diseases with one fundamental similarity: they are all initiated by the unchecked proliferation and growth of cells in which the pathways and systems that normally control cell division and mortality are absent. Cancer-cell abnormalities are often due to mutations of the genes that control the cell cycle and cell growth. To understand cancer cells, then, one must first understand the processes that regulate normal cell cycles. This course will cover the origins of cancer and the genetic and cellular basis for cancer. It will examine the factors that have been implicated in triggering cancers; the intercellular interactions involved in cancer proliferation; current treatments for cancer and how these are designed; and future research and treatment directions for cancer therapy.
