Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, claiming nearly 575,000 lives a year. Those deaths are the result of over 200 types of cancer, some of which remain only partially understood. But thanks to research, this gap between what we do and do not understand about cancer is shrinking.
We continue to take significant strides in how we treat cancer, and Drexel University College of Medicine is proud to contribute to that advancement by educating future researchers through our Cancer Biology (CBIO) program.
The Cancer Biology program of Drexel University provides a master's degree focused on the fundamentals of cancer from an interdisciplinary perspective, including molecular and cell biology of cancer initiation, metastasis, immunology, treatment and prevention while gaining experience in cutting edge technology. Graduates of the program gain comprehensive knowledge of molecular, cell and cancer biology, as well as expertise in the latest techniques used in cancer biology research.
