7.343 When Development Goes Awry: How Cancer Co-opts Mechanisms of Embryogensis (MIT) 7.343 When Development Goes Awry: How Cancer Co-opts Mechanisms of Embryogensis (MIT)

Description

During this course, we will study the similarities between cancer and normal development to understand how tumors co-opt normal developmental processes to facilitate cancer initiation, maintenance and progression. We will examine critical signaling pathways that govern these processes and, importantly, how some of these pathways hold promise as therapeutic targets for cancer treatment. We will discuss how future treatments might be personalized to target cancer cells in specific patients. We will also consider examples of newly-approved drugs that have dramatically helped patients combat this devastating disease. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary res During this course, we will study the similarities between cancer and normal development to understand how tumors co-opt normal developmental processes to facilitate cancer initiation, maintenance and progression.

18.785 Number Theory I (MIT)

Description

This is the first semester of a one year graduate course in number theory covering standard topics in algebraic and analytic number theory. At various points in the course, we will make reference to material from other branches of mathematics, including topology, complex analysis, representation theory, and algebraic geometry.
