About Event



Cancer is a broad term, it describes an enormous spectrum of diseases that all originate due to uncontrolled growth of abnormal cell. A normal cell undergoes regulated division, differentiation and apoptosis but when normal cells have lost the usual control over their division, differentiation and apoptosis they become tumor cell. Most cancers are initiated by genetic changes and majority of them are caused by changes in somatic cells and therefore are not transmitted to the next generation. The transformation of a normal cell into a tumor cell is referred to as cell transformation. The transition from a normal to a transformed state is a multistep process involving genetic as well as epigenetic changes and the selection of cells with the progressively increasing capacity for proliferation, invasion and metastasis.In this modern world study of cancer is of utmost importance in order to develop effective methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat and ultimately cure the collections of diseases so called cancer. The better we understand these diseases, the more progress we make towards diminishing the human and economic tolls of cancer.


AIM of the Events
It will inform students about the transformation of a normal cell into a cancerous cell and the various types of cancer diseases. It will help students to know about the properties of a cancer cell and also to identify the differences between normal and cancerous cell.
Content of the EventTo learn about cancer and its types and how normal cell transform into a cancerous cell.
Highlights of Events



The study of cancer biology helps us to understand cancer genetics and how somatic mutation drive diseases. It gives us insights into the complexity of cancer biology and genetic mutation. It will also help students to know about the carcinogens which contribute to development of cancer.
