GS21 1621   Topics in Cancer Prevention I

Chang, Shine; Chamberlain, Robert, Cameron, Carrie. One semester hour. Fall annually. Prerequisite: none

The objectives of this course are to (a) provide an overview of the current scientific basis for cancer prevention and control in humans, (b) introduce current methods of determining risk factors in humans along with their subsequent alteration, and (c) suggest future opportunities through integration of selected areas of basic science with classical etiologic research in order to refine and quantitate risk factors. Current opportunities for early detection of preclinical cancer will be presented. The course will provide a foundation in cancer prevention and control for future basic science investigators.
