I know how I’m going to spend the entirety of my Christmas break: preparing to teach my new Cancer Biology course. And since I’m going to be dwelling on cancer for the next month or so, I think it’s only fair that my students and any passers-by should also get a faceful of the stuff. So here are the texts I’ve settled on for the course:
Weinberg’s Biology of Cancer
Skloot’s Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Mukherjee’s The Emperor of All Maladies
There will also be a few papers assigned throughout the term, but that ought to get everyone started on a good long depression.
