Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): Cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher or membership in the Honors Program

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

The course will investigate the fundamental molecular and cellular biological principles of cancer cells. Emphasis will be placed on genetic and regulatory pathways involved in cancer formation and development into advanced stage. Primary literature will effectively be used in an interactive setting to supplement learning and discussion by encouraging critical analysis of current cancer research methods. Special attention will also be made to the clinical treatments and prevention of cancer.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis; and
  2. Application of scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural (or physical) sciences.
