Cancer Biology

Understand inner workings of cell growth and signalling that leads to tumors.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 was awarded jointly to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna for the development of a method for genome editing.


Cancer is one of the most prevalent diseases affecting people of any age. This course is intended to introduce and build upon underlyingprinciples of abnormal cell growth and mechanisms that enable tumorigenesis. You will further learn about diagnosis, treatment, and cutting-edge research in the field of cancer.


  • Understand how a normal cell becomes cancerous and mechanism oftumorigenesis
  • Mechanistic insights leading to improved Anti-cancer therapy.
  • What is resistance and why is cancer still largely incurable?
  • What are the types of therapies to fight cancer

Introduce topics & technologies like

  • Cell & Molecular biology
  • Precision medicine
  • Tumor evolution
  • Omics technologies
  • CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing, etc)
  • Cancer Immunotherapy
  • Cancer Informatics
Career counselling about an increasingly wide range of available careers, including research(academic & Pharmaceutical company based), teaching, Medical practitioners to name a few.
