I am an Undergraduate student and i didnt even read oncology subject, but this course not just start the beginer level , butt gradually it goes in depth and the flow of lectuures and topics is smooth
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!

I think this was a very good course and I definitely got out of it what I expected. I think anyone interested in advancing their knowledge on the general basics of cancer, this is a good place to start.

I benefited hugely from this course although I don't have background in clinical practice. The introduction to Medical imagery was a little bit challenging for me, It could've been further simplified.

Good basic introduction to cancer biology, some of the information was a little dry but all in all worthwhile. Some prior knowledge of basic biological concepts needed.
By Jose A d A R•
Content is tailored to the general audience but a some lectures are spoken at a very high pace, which I though made it a bit difficult to catch all the information.

This is a great course for those interested in gaining more basic clarity on this topic. I would recommend it to all with a need for more information on Cancer.

If there is a more detail description about that different kind of the six most common cancers that would be great. The 10 hallmarks of cancers are very useful.

very good and insightful course.it has helped me a lot to gain understanding of basics in cancer biology even though i am an undergraduate biochemistry student.
By Matthew B•
The information in this course is great. I only wish the assessments were more comprehensive and challenging to test your true understanding of the material.
By Ranim A Z•
screening and treatment parts were hard for me because I'm not a specialist, yet the course is a perfect introduction for non-specialized interested people

This course is a great introduction to the disease of cancer. An update to this course would be wonderful as it was completed in 2016. Very interesting.

It is a basic course to get you interested in the field of cancer biology. Suitable for undergrads and above. The course delivered on what they promised.
By Alexander J S•
I did a module, just like this during my undergraduate days. Whilst I found it quite basic and just a refresher, the content is well presented and clear.
By Khin S O•
This is very interesting course of basic of cancelling pathway and the biology of cancer that can fundamental to the study of research of cancer. Thanks.
By Humera S•
It was very interesting. but the recent critiques of cancer Hallmarks and theories related to cancer heterogeneity should be included
By Ummi C•
The class was clear and concise. I was hoping to get more challenge and in depth explanation but it is indeed an introductory class.
By Aditya A D•
Tougher assignments and a final exam consisting of dummy experimental data to test the knowledge of the students would be welcome!
By Deleted A•
Its a good course that outlines the basics of cancer biology. Highly recommended for anyone interested in understanding cancer.
By Syed S A•
Should have two separate modules. from Week 5.
One for MBBS students and technologists. One for Higher Academicians
By Kazi T•
Some content could be a little more informative and rigorous. "Intro" essentially meant seeing the surface only.
By Michael L•
It's a great introduction course for cancers. Both contents and quiz are bit too easy and lack of challenges.
I mean, I am really fond of Biology and the Biotechnology, I think I will really appreciate this opportunity.
