Thank you for your interest in NCI's Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention. The 2007 Summer Curriculum will include two courses to be held in Rockville, Maryland:

Advance registration is required and will open in February 2006. For international participants interested in financial support, the deadline is March 1, 2006.

2007 Molecular Prevention Course

Course Description

The course provides a strong background in the molecular biology and genetics of cancer as well as an overview of the basic laboratory approaches applied to cutting-edge research in the fields of molecular epidemiology, bionutrition, chemoprevention, biomarkers, and translational research. The following topics will be presented: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, DNA damage and repair, apoptosis, angiogenesis, DNA methylation, xenobiotic metabolism, epigenetic changes in cell signaling, hormonal carcinogenesis, animal models for cancer prevention studies, the role of inflammation in cancer, application of genomics and proteomics in cancer research, and molecular target identification in cancer prevention research.

The National Institutes of Health/Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (NIH/FAES) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The target audiences are MD and PhD degree holders who also hold an MPH degree, and were selected into the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program, and MD and PhD degree holders with an interest in cancer prevention and control from the NIH and the NCI, national organizations, and foreign institutions.

If you have a disability and require any assistive devices, services, or other reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity, please contact the Office of Preventive Oncology at 301-496-8640 at least 1 week in advance of the lecture date to discuss your needs.

Educational Objectives
The overall objective of the course is to provide specialized instruction in principles of molecular biology as applied in the field of cancer prevention. The course focuses on the concepts, methods, issues, and applications of molecular biology in cancer prevention efforts and genetics of cancer. Participants will have an opportunity to gain a broad-based perspective of these subject areas, including basic laboratory methodology and theory of how molecular techniques are applied to molecular epidemiology, bionutrition, chemoprevention, biomarkers, and translational research. Life-long learning skills include critical appraisal of molecular approaches, methodologies, and theories used in the field of cancer prevention.
