Cancer Biology

Molecular aspects of cell cycle regulation in eukaryotic cells from yeast to humans will be covered. This knowledge will be then integrated with current concepts and knowledge about cancer in order to explore the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying cancer development and progression. Specific topics covered will include the eukaryotic cell cycle, the history of cancer, oncogenes, tumor suppressors, and cancer-causing viruses. The laboratory will complement the lectures and introduce the student to cell culture.
