11 – 15 October 2021 (Erasmus MC)

The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of translational cancer research and is directed primarily at PhD students and postdocs in MolMed, MGC and OOA/NCI but others (e.g., students and technicians) are welcome too. The program is set up logically in 5 steps, one step a day:

Pathology, diagnostics & pathways in cancer, Biology of the cancer cell: Genetics, Invasion, metastasis & inflammation, Tumor Immunology; Clinical practice: targeted therapies and Epidemiology of cancer; personalized medicine; end-of-life interventions.

The program is enriched with journal clubs (JC’s) on Tuesday and discussion sessions with course speakers on most days.
