Course objectives :

The guided Study course is an independent study planned to be a student-initiated experience to pursue an area of interest in clinical laboratory science with guidance of a faculty preceptor. The course focuses on the continuing development of an understanding of the research process through participation in an ongoing research project and course seminars.The course allows independent learning in a structured format with the guidance and feedback of a mentor. Identify types of articles and their compositions. a2-List the risk factors of cancer. a3- Identify the aim of scientific research in cancer chemistry. a4-Arrange ideas to construct scientific research beginning with idea of research, prepararing materials, laboratories experiments, collect data, writing and presentation of research. a5- Recognize the mechanism of carcinogenesis. a6-List some carcinogenic agents. a7-Identify the metabolism of xenobiotics a8-Recognize the relationship between xenobiotics and cancer. a9-Identify the molecular basics of cancer.
