Case Studies. Four 2-hour sessions each week during WinterSession.

This course will use case-based and problem-based approaches to Cancer Biology. The course will meet four times per week and will involve a mix of case presentations/discussions, and problem-based classes with small group work followed by group presentations. Each case/problem will be chosen based on a unique exposure event; elements of exposure assessment, epidemiology, and molecular clinical biology will be presented. The end of each case presentation will be devoted to discussion of study design and how the integrated elements of the malignancy (i.e. exposure, molecular biology, and clinical presentation) should be considered and addressed. Problem-based sessions will include small group work and class presentations.
Course Note: GCD210 required. Enrollment limited, instructor's signature required; priority will be given to doctoral candidates. Minimum enrollment required. Course offered January 3 - 25, from 10 am to 12 pm, during WinterSession.
