Molecular Mechanisms of
Targeted Cancer Therapies

 

Molecular Mechanisms of Targeted Cancer Therapies

Note: This page will be updated through December

Understanding Cancer

The resource Exploring the Structural Biology of Cancer is a comprehensive guide on the molecular mechanisms of cancer. Using this resource, you will gain understanding of how cancer originates, grows, and spreads in the body, as well as what treatments are available to the cancer patients.

Understanding Targeted Cancer Therapies

A section of your video should introduce the viewers the concept of targeted cancer therapies. One overview can be found at National Cancer Institute Targeted Therapy to Treat Cancer, another at American Cancer Society How Targeted Therapies Are Used to Treat Cancer.
