University Of Bath

This lecture is a beginner’s guide to cancer genetics, outlining six basic principles that inform our current thinking of how cancer develops and grows at the molecular, cellular and physiological level. This lecture is linked to Dr. Hejmadi’s free course (MOOC), ‘Inside Cancer’.




Dr Momna Hejmadi is a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Bath. Her research focuses on characterisation of photolyases (DNA repair enzymes) from extremophiles and Hypoxic signaling pathways in neuronal and cancer models. Momna is responsible for the coordination of Bath’s ‘MOOC’ (Massive Open Online Course) titled ‘Inside cancer: how genes influence cancer development’, run through the FutureLearn platform as a free online course.
