CANCER RESEARCH ANYONE?
Do you want to make a difference in the fight against cancer? The University of Alabama at Birmingham is the only university in the United States with a cancer biology undergraduate program, which means students can get a head start on preparing for a career in research, treatment, and other areas.
To create this one-of-a-kind degree, UAB brought together high-level educators in both the Department of Chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology in the School of Medicine.
The curriculum is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of cancer cell biology and behavior – something that’s usually reserved for graduate students. And the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB, the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Alabama, means national leaders in both treatment and research will have ties to this program.
By the time a student graduates, they will have learned about areas such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, gene therapy, and much more.
