To educate engineers and physical scientists about the key concepts in clinical cancer care, including current controversies and areas of need. The ultimate goal of the course is to provide a basis of knowledge to inspire physical and engineering scientists to work together with cancer researchers and clinicians to advance our understanding of cancer and to develop diagnostic, therapeutic and imaging tools. No background in cancer biology is assumed; the course is appropriate for faculty members in physics, chemistry, or engineering departments, as well as graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
