Excellent course. I've had family memebers affected by cancer, so I wanted to learn more about the disease. I feel like I understand it much better now. I thought it was presented at such a level where someone could understand the material even if they haven't had much previous scientific training. Some of the results presented were surprising and counterintuitive. Thanks again!
