TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO THE BIOLOGY OF CANCER
Excellent course for anyone interested in knowing more about the origin, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, even for beginners. Thanks to JHU for putting such an excellent course material together!
I am an Undergraduate student and i didnt even read oncology subject, but this course not just start the beginer level , butt gradually it goes in depth and the flow of lectuures and topics is smooth
The course is very structured in a way that the student who does not have any heavy background in Oncology will understand the course. Thank you very much for the student-friendly lessons!
Thoroughly enjoyable course that covered some of the molecular biology and pharmacological management of cancer. Definitely gave me a heads up for my pathophysiology studies next semester!
