CCBIO907 Cancer-related vascular biology, 21 September - 2 October 2020

Center for Cancer Biomarkers and the University of Bergen have the pleasure of inviting you to a web based CCBIO course: CCBIO907 Cancer-related vascular biology, 21 September - 2 October 2020

CCBIO907 is a 6 ECTS course that provides broad theoretical and practical understanding of basic aspects of vascular biology, cancer-related vascular biology, and other processes and diseases where vascular biology is relevant. The course presents knowledge about relationships between vascular biology, cancer progression, and diagnostic and treatment options directed towards the vasculature. Applied methods for studying vascular biology and biomarkers reflecting cancer-related vascular biology are taught. Also, the course aims to stimulate to scientific thinking, critical election and professional discussions.

CCBIO907 is part of the CCBIO-Harvard INTPART collaboration, and participants attending this course will have the rare opportunity to benefit from the knowledge of researchers who have been in the frontline of vascular biology research for decades, and who are experienced lecturers at Harvard Medical School. This year, you will get to meet Edward R. Smith, Joyce Bischoff and Hong Cheng in addition to Randy Watnick and Mike Rogers. Elisabeth Wik and Lars A. Akslen have the academic responsibility, and Heidrun Vethe is the course coordinator.
