Molecular Basis of Cancer - Lecture

About Activity

At the end of this lecture, attendees are expected to learn the followings:
1. Molecular basis of cancer.
2. The multistage nature of cancer, including the roles of the environment and somatic mutation.
3. The genetic mechanisms involved in hereditary cancer predispositions and sporadic cancers.
4. The roles of specific oncogenes involved in the development and progression of cancer and inactivation of tumor suppressor genes.
5. Molecular targeted approaches to therapies for different cancers, predictive, and prognostic biomarkers.
1. To provide knowledge and understanding of the molecular mechanisms through which cancer is generated.
2. To understanding of cellular changes that result from damage or alteration of cells at a molecular level.
3. To understand the role of genetics in hereditary cancer predispositions and sporadic cancers.
