Cancer Genetics is a team-based learning course that requires students to create proposals for novel treatments for specific kinds of cancer. Students analyze the research literature to identify unaddressed opportunities for treatment based on specific criteria pertaining to the genetic defects causing disease. They then must design a novel treatment using accepted genetic methods and drug delivery systems currently used in research and clinically.
