The goal of the MS in Cancer Biology program is to provide a master's degree focused on the fundamentals of cancer from an interdisciplinary perspective, including: Biology and molecular biology of cancer initiation; Metastasis; Treatment; and Bioinformatics/systems biology. The program is designed to meet the needs of two groups of individuals: (1) new or recent college graduates who wish to increase their marketability for jobs in academic or industrial laboratories through the acquisition of knowledge and skills more developed than obtained through a standard college curriculum; and (2) currently employed technical staff in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry (or academia) who wish to advance their position. Consisting of classroom and laboratory instruction, the program fills a need to train laboratory personnel in cancer theory and research. Graduates of this program will possess knowledge in both the theoretical as well as the practical level.
