Introduction to the Biology of Cancer (BIO2104.01)

Amie McClellan

The cells in our bodies need to grow and divide in order to make new tissue, and to repair or replace damaged tissue. The processes that govern cell growth and division are tightly regulated. When the cells that comprise the tissues of our bodies lose the ability to properly regulate their growth and proliferation, cancer is the result. This introductory level course will provide an overview of the basic causes, mechanisms and genetics underlying human cancers, as well as explore current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
