Part 1 of Biology of Cancer : What is Cancer Like What is Cancer Like ? Why do we need to know about Cancer ? (Intro501) What are cancers like as clinical diseases ? (Clinical) What are incidence patterns of cancers like? (Epidemio) How are cancers defined and classified ? (DefClass) What do we study in cancer biology and cancer medicine? (Models) When we study cancer cells, what features do we see? (CellProp) Cancers as a collection of heterogenous cell populations. (Hetero) Aberrant differentiation and progression in Cancer (Progress) Invasion and metastasis in Cancer (Inv&Mets) Cancer growth in culture, in non-human animals, and in patients (Growth) Not Covered in 2010: Models in the study of cancer metastasis (MetModels)

Part 2 of Biology of Cancer : Why is Cancer Like That Why is Cancer Like That ? What accounts for the phenomenology of cancer that we see? How do cancers get that way? What maintains them in their pathology? Why do they progress in their pathology and become malignant? What can we do about it? How can we prevent the appearance of cancers? How can we manage the cancers when they appear? How can we treat cancer patients in clinical oncology based on our understanding of what makes cancers “tick”?
