Cancer Biology

Cancer biology is a major area of study for our students. The cancer biology curriculum extends beyond departmental boundaries and across campuses, having been initiated as an interdepartmental training program in the 1980s. Students are active participants in journal clubs, research-in-progress meetings, mini-symposia and seminars sponsored by the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. After developing a strong foundation in modern biology through our core courses, students use the cancer biology curriculum to receive further training in the molecular and cellular basis of cancer.
