GS04 1093 The Biology of Cancer Metastasis

  • Credit Hours: 3
  • Grading System: Letter Grade
  • Prerequisites: None


A didactic introductory level course entirely dedicated to the study of the cellular biological processes that underpin cancer metastasis. This course will cover basic, translational, and clinical knowledge, with specific emphases on the metastatic cascade: seed and soil hypothesis, organ-specific metastasis, cell cycle and metastasis, multiple therapies for various metastatic cancers, and will address the process of taking basic research to the clinic (‘bench-to-bedside') for major metastatic human cancers. 

This is a prerequisite course for cancer biology students in the cancer discovery track.
