Course Description

We all grow and heal due to cell divisions. But crazy cell divisions is
dangerous…it is cancer. When US president Richard Nixon asked
the scientists to join a “war on Cancer” back in 1972, we did not
know much about cancer, although many were dying from this
deadly disease. Since then a lot has been learned. With the help of
statistics, probability, and modeling, we will explore the history of
recognition of the disease as well as the types, possible causes, and
other aspects of the nature of cancer. But remember….cancer has
no answer!
