M.Sc. Cancer Biology


M.Sc. in Cancer Biology is a postgraduate program from JAIN (Deemed-to-be University). Although tremendous determination has been invested in the fight against cancer and substantial improvement has been made in therapeutic options over the past years, this disease still remains one of the major causes of untimely death. It is thus of paramount importance to put further efforts into better understanding the biology of cancer and into developing means to improve diagnosis and therapy. Thus with the aim of promoting teaching and research in Cancer Biology, the program needs to start the program in "Cancer Biology" and offers ample training in cancer research for students. Cancer Biology studies the complex interplay of genes, proteins and biological processes that drive the development and growth of cancers. Understanding the many different biological systems underlying cancer’s development is essential for understanding cancer and identifying new targets for treatment.
