CANB 606 - Mechanisms of Cancer Journal Club
Cross-departmental Journal Club composed of students, postdocs, fellows, and clinical/basic science faculty with shared interest in basic principles, emerging discoveries and new therapeutic approaches in Cancer Biology. The Goals of this JC are:
- To critically evaluate new cutting edge literature on mechanisms underlying the development of cancer to inform the development of new therapeutics. Papers should be paradigm shifting and set a backdrop for discussion into therapeutics facilitated by the clinical attendees.
- To provide students, postdocs, and fellows with training and interactions with faculty interested in Cancer Biology and emerging therapeutics.
CANB 606A – Tumor Microenvironment Journal Club
CANB 607 - Knight Cancer Biology Seminar Series
Seminar series sponsored by the Knight Cancer Institute and the Dept. of Cell, Developmental and Cancer Biology. This series has a strong emphasis on fundamental science and translational research topics presented by leading extramural scientists.
Upcoming seminar information can be found here.
CANB 610 - Current Topics in Cancer (Winter Term, Alt years)
Graduate course with an emphasis on recent ground-breaking research from cancer biology literature along with in-depth presentation of supporting basic concepts of biochemistry and molecular biology. Topics are chosen from areas of expertise and interest among the Cancer Biology faculty including: drug discovery, tumor microenvironment, role of DNA damage response in cancer susceptibility and drug resistance, regulatory signaling pathways, cancer stem cells, metastatic progression and angiogenesis.
CANB 613/CELL 613 - Tissue Biology (Winter term, yearly -depending on enrollment).
CANB 616 - Advanced Topics in Cancer Biology (Spring Term)
The course consists of a comprehensive coverage of topics in cancer biology including mechanisms of carcinogenesis, the roles of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, molecular targets for novel therapeutic strategies, and an understanding of the pathogenesis of specific cancers such as breast, prostate, gastrointestinal, skin, and blood. This course is open to OHSU postdocs.
2018 tentative schedule is available here.
