TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO THE BIOLOGY OF CANCER
Great course, I'm 15 and learned a lot. The ease with which each lesson can be understood changed lesson to lesson, depending on how well the researcher explained. But still great course!
Excellent course for anyone interested in knowing more about the origin, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, even for beginners. Thanks to JHU for putting such an excellent course material together!
Great introductory course for students and researchers interested in the field of cancer. Thanks a lot to Coursera and instructors from JHU med school to put it together. Highly recommended!
The course is very structured in a way that the student who does not have any heavy background in Oncology will understand the course. Thank you very much for the student-friendly lessons!
