Cancer health disparities represent a major public health problem in the United States.   This course addresses the biological basis for the observed unequal burdens of cancer across racial/ethnic populations.  The impact of genetic/genomic/epigenetic variability between groups that may affect cancer susceptibility and/or response to therapy which is vital to reducing the cancer gaps will be explored.  The course will also explore evidence-based mechanisms that are designed to increase our understanding of biological factors and mechanisms that play a role in cancer health disparities.
