This course investigates the molecular basis of cancer by comparing normal cells to cancer cells with respect to growth control mechanisms, signal transduction, and cell-cell and cell-environment interactions. A large percent of the content of the course comes from recent research papers which students read and present to the class. Laboratory exercises include primary tissue culture, immunofluorescence microscopy, immunodetection, and a final research project.
