Understanding cancer

April 13, 2016

Students in the Cancer Biology (BIO 3400) course host a poster presentation on the early detection and treatment programs of cancer for the campus community last week.

About 20 students in Dr. Michelle Andrzejak tackled topics like leukemia, skin, esophageal, brain and ovarian cancers.

“I am looking to go into dentistry,” says Cody Bruno.  “Understanding the warning signs of cancer is important for a dentist.  A routine visit to may help in early detection.”

Research on skin cancer was a natural fit for Labrene Seremetis and Ami Patel whose future interest includes dermatology. 

“We love this course,” says Seremetis and Patel.  “Learning about the molecular level of cancer was very interesting.   The course is fun even though the subject matter can be difficult.”

“The assignment engages students in identifying early detection methods and modern treatments,” says Andrzejak.  “By adding the element of a poster presentation, students are exposed to presenting their research to classmates, staff and faculty.
