Learning outcomes

CancerBio Summer School (CBSS) is an annually organized course since 2007. The general aim of the course is to keep track of the latest trends in the fast moving field of cancer biology. The course is designed to provide the students with a deeper understanding of the tenets of cancer biology and also introduce them to the latest trends in this field. We try to do so by including topics that are in vogue, having interactive sessions, building teamwork and inviting outstanding and distinguished scientists and clinicians.
