CBIO 840. Tumor Microenvironment. 2 Hours.

This 2-credit course is offered every other year. This course is designed to achieve two goals. First, to learn about the role of tumor microenvironment in promoting tumor growth, metastasis and response to therapy. Emphasis is given to understand the complex nature of the tumor microenvironment and use examples from specific tumor types to illustrate how the various components of the microenvironment contribute to tumor progression. By the end of the course, students should understand the components of the tumor microenvironment and their effect on the clinical course of the cancer. In addition, they should be able to design experiments to tease out the importance of these components in tumor progression and response to therapy. Secondly, the course is designed to foster higher order thinking in learners, specifically pertaining to the development and application of new theories. The class will involve pre-work and in-class discussion for a total of 3 hours per week. Pre-work including podcast lectures, individual readiness assessment tests, and associated material will be made available to the students on Blackboard two weeks before each in-class session. Prerequisite: Permission of Instructor and College Level Biology. LEC.
