CCB701 BIOC701

CCB701/BIOC701 Biochemical and Oncogenic Signaling

CCB701/BIOC701 is a 3 credit course designed for the advanced graduate student. The course will focus on in-depth coverage of the principles defining mechanistic biochemical signaling pathways utilized by normal and transformed cells. Specific topics include receptor tyrosine kinases, signaling by cytokine receptors, G protein-coupled receptors, nonreceptor tyrosine kinses, Ras superfamily proteins, MAP kinases, PI3 kinase and PTEN, NFκB, Wnt, Hedgehog and Notch signalings, steroids and steroid receptors, and mTOR and AMPK signalings. At the conclusion of this course, students will possess a solid understanding of key concepts of signal transduction as well as analytical skills in reviewing the contemporary research literature in signaling networks relevant to biochemistry and cancer biology. Basic knowledge in cell biology is recommended, though not required, to enroll this course. Students can contact course coordinator if they have concerns about their foundation required to successfully complete the course. This course is the joint listing between Department of Biochemistry and Cancer Cell Biology Program.
