As part of our medical programme at David Game College, a series of lectures and seminars is arranged that covers a range of medically-related topics.

The lecture on the biology of cancer will cover the following topics:

  1. Which animals also get cancer – not just humans
  2. What is cancer?
  3. The special case of Naked Mole Rat!
  4. Medical facts around cancer
  5. Correlations and causations
  6. The cell cycle, mutation and genetic basis of cancer
  7. Genomic instability
  8. Why evolution helps explain cancer
  9. Cell transformation
  10. Necrosis and apoptosis
  11. Tumour formation
  12. Angiogenesis
  13. Metastasis
  14. Genetics: proto-oncogenes; tumour suppressing genes and miRNAs
  15. Epigenetics and cancer

Everyone is welcome, but we expect those who are applying for medicine or medically-related courses to specially attend as the content could prove very useful for knowledge development and towards helping out with potential interviews.
