Cancer Biology is an area of concentration within BBS in collaboration with faculty at the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. This program seeks to provide advanced training and an integrated community for those students interested in pursuing cancer-related research. The curriculum will emphasize topics relevant to cancer biology, including signaling, basic cell biology, disease pathology, and translational research. Additional activities, including an oncology seminar series and a student data club, will provide opportunities for students to extend their studies and community beyond the classroom and thesis laboratory.
The BBS Program in Cancer Biology is part of the Landry Cancer Biology Consortium, a Harvard GSAS Graduate Consortium.
