TBIO-581 Topics in Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer Risk
Fall for 2017-2018
This course introduces students to the concept of carcinogenesis process (chemical, viral, and physical) with a focus on the causes, distribution and prevention of cancer in populations. The course emphasizes the roles of DNA damage/repair, individual genetic differences to environmental exposures in cancer risk. Students will learn how the current knowledge is used to develop molecular and genetic biomarkers that could be applied to assess cancer risk and identify potential risk and protective factors.
