Section Description

Technologies for Cancer Diagnosis and Therapy provides an introduction to how cancer is diagnosed and treated, focusing on related fundamental concepts in cancer biology and bioengineering. One major goal is for students to become comfortable integrating principles from physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology related to current strategies for understanding, detecting, and treating cancer. A second major goal is for students to understand and assess innovative solutions to current limitations in the field, and to use this information to generate a research proposal in the format of an NIH R21, which will be written and reviewed throughout the course term. The materials and content are designed for first year graduate students and senior undergraduate students from diverse majors. Recommended Prerequisites: BIOE 206 and CHEM 232, or equivalent knowledge.
