Davis, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
The Center for Genomic Pathology and UC Davis Extension announce a new course in the online series Pathobiology of the Mouse: Mouse as a Model for Mammary Cancer. This groundbreaking course is the first in the second tier of the program and is designed for experienced investigators at the doctoral level working in mammary tumor biology. The course includes case studies and interactive conferences with expert faculty. Now open for enrollment, the course is scheduled to launch on June 11, 2012.
According to Dr. Louise R. Howe, Associate Professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, "The Pathobiology of the Mouse Mammary Gland course will provide a fantastic introduction for researchers new to the field, while allowing more experienced investigators to refine their understanding of mammary histopathology. The course provides an accessible distillate of Dr. Bob Cardiff's many years of experience focusing on mouse mammary pathobiology, accompanied by both historical and molecular perspectives."
