CB212 Course

Biology of the Cancer Cell: From Molecular Mechanisms to Therapeutic Implications
Semester: Spring
Offered: 2023, every two years

Directed by Alex Toker, Professor in the Department of Pathology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. This course gives students a broad overview of some of the most exciting avenues of cancer research happening today. Whether that is a discussion of metabolism in cancer or an exploration of heterogeneity among cancer cells, students learn from thought leaders from across the Harvard landscape.  Additionally, students develop their professional skills in the practice of science and experimental design by presenting a research article in a journal club format as well as writing a research proposal in the style of a grant application. 

This course was previously directed by Associate Professor David Frank, a physician-scientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
