Cancer Biology Pathway


Coursemaster: Jeffrey Magee, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics

This course is designed to present pre and post doctoral trainees with an organized educational format to explore major contemporary topics in cancer biology. The elective will provide an integrated view of cancer research including basic science, translational science and clinical investigation. Approximately 50 minutes will be devoted to a didactic presentation by a faculty member with interaction by the participants. The remaining 30 minutes will be used to discuss a pivotal research paper from this field, preselected by the faculty member. Outside reading will be required (30-60 minutes per week).
