TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO THE BIOLOGY OF CANCER
This course was really useful for me, and it helped me to gather more information about cancer biology as well. Thank you all the organizers who made thing course really a beneficial one.
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!
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!
Before taking that course, I was not sure whether this course will be time worthy or not.But after completing it, I am very glad because I was able to understand alot of new concepts and things.
