2018-2019 Cancer Genetics 

Integrative activity for 4 credits

Dear Students,

as an integrative activity to my Cancer Genetics course I would ask you to prepare a PPT presentation based on one of the  the following Review paper:

Marteijn et al. “Understanding nucleotide excision repair and its role in ageing and cancer” Nature Review (2014)

Galluzzi et al. “Linking cellular stress responses to systemic homeostasis” Nature Review (2018)

I enclose the paper PDF files as an attachment.

The activity will be a critical assessment of the current literature.

The PPT presentation will need to be organised as follows: Background/Introduction, Experimental approaches, Problems and Promises. 

You are kindly asked to send the presentation to me before the chosen exam session for this course together with your availability for a brief oral presentation.

The grading will be a Pass/Fail evaluation. 

In order to be able to take the Cancer Genetics exam a Pass assessment is needed.

Thank you for your attention
