This is a wonderful courses for learning about cancer metastasis.

A very informative course that I highly recommend. Great explanations of a lot of terminology used when speaking or reading about cancer. I would love to see courses that go more in-depth about cytokines or cancer syndromes. This is the second J.H.U. course that I've taken about cancer and now I plan on taking the Prostate Cancer course, as well.

Everything was intresting and usefull. I hope this knowledge will help me in my research work!
