CMCA 551S Control of the Cell Cycle and Cell Death 2.0 Credits
This course focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the Cell Cycle and Cell Death. Control of the cell cycle is essential for proper cell proliferation. Similarly, controlled cell death, or apoptosis, is important for removing cells that are sick or defective. Disfunction of these processes is fundamental to many mechanisms of cancer development and clinical treatment. The course is run as a discussion-based format that focuses on primary literature pertaining to breakthroughs or new methods related to Cell Cycle and Cell Death.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
