10.548J Tumor Pathophysiology and Transport Phenomena: A Systems Biology Approach


Class Info

Tumor pathophysiology plays a central role in the growth, invasion, metastasis and treatment of solid tumors. Principles of transport phenomena are applied to develop a systems level, quantitative understanding of angiogenesis, blood flow and microcirculation, metabolism and microenvironment, transport and binding of small and large molecules, movement of cancer and immune cells, metastatic process, and treatment response.

This class has 18.03, and 10.301 as prerequisites.

10.548J will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by R. K. Jain.

This class counts for a total of 6 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
