ONCSC 6500 - 001 Clinical Biology of Cancer


This course will meet in the HCI Research South 6th floor conference room. In alternating years, this course is focused on the current understanding of the molecular and cellular biology of cancer along with how this knowledge relates to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. The complementary sister-course is focused on clinical cancer biology. It is designed for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in basic science departments with an interest in modern principles and practice of oncology. It will cover general principles and new developments in cancer etiology, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. The course is organized around specific diseases, using advances in each area to highlight modern principles and practice of oncology.

ONCSC 6700 - 001 Tumor Microenvironment


This course will be on Thursdays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Huntsman Cancer Institute Research South 2C Conference Room. Prerequisite: This course is designed for graduate students that have completed their first year Tumor development and progression are shaped by both tumor-intrinsic and -extrinsic factors. While the importance of the interaction between tumor cells and the host microenvironment was first proposed over a century ago, advances in technology and our understanding of the tumor microenvironment have led to an increasing appreciation for the role of the host in cancer progression. This course will focus on the contribution of both the cellular and non-cellular components of the tumor microenvironment to tumor progression and response to therapy, including – but not limited to – stromal cells, immune cells, and the extracellular matrix. This is an Advanced Seminar course and will utilize the primary literature as a basis for student presentations and critical discussion.
