The course covers molecular, biochemical, medical, physiological and cellular biological responses, mechanisms and adaptations.
The main emphasis is on knowledge and understanding, theory and scientific methods and oral presentation. The content of the individual courses appears in the course description on study.ruc.dk.
|Detailed description of content||
The course is a theoretical course with lectures and student presentations. The course focusses on the molecular mechanisms behind cancer development, diagnosis and treatment.
|Course material and Reading list||
Selected scientific article within cancer biology
|Overall plan and expected work effort||
Overall plan: in general the course is planned as followed: each session beginns with a lecturer presentation and is followed by 2-3 student presentations.
- A total of 135 hours
|Evaluation and feedback||
The course includes formative evaluation based on dialogue between the students and the teacher(s).
Students are expected to provide constructive critique, feedback and viewpoints during the course if it is needed for the course to have better quality. Every other year at the end of the course, there will also be an evaluation through a questionnaire in SurveyXact. The Study Board will handle all evaluations along with any comments from the course responsible teacher.
Furthermore, students can, in accordance with RUCs ‘feel free to state your views’ strategy through their representatives at the study board, send evaluations, comments or insights form the course to the study board during or after the course.

The duration of the take-home assignment is 7 days and may include weekends and public holidays.
|Type of examination in special cases||
|Examination and assessment criteria||
Satisfactory participation is defined as: Passing the course required as well one satisfactory oral presentation of a scientific article within Cancer biology and an approved systematic review within a self-chosen topic in cancer biology.
Regarding the reexam: During the 7 days exam period other study activities from projects or courses can appear
