Term: Spring 2019Units 3Days: MON WEDTimes: 11:30-12:45

Some of the many questions, concerns and misconceptions raised by the study of film through genre: What is genre? Are film genres a marketing tool, a by-product of journalism or a fundamental way of understanding and discussing motion pictures? Is there such a thing as a `genre film? or is no movie immune to genre criticism? What are the generic tropes associated with certain genres? Can a film belong to more than one genre? Does a film?s genre stay the same over time? Does a genre-based view expand or delimit our conception of a motion picture?

CAMM 606 / TUMOR MICROENVIRONMENT OF SOLID TUMER II
Term: Spring 2019Units 3Days: FRITimes: 15:00-16:00

Many of the solid tumors contain significant amounts of stromal tissue. In extreme cases, such as pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, tumor stroma can be more abundant then the tumor tissue. It is becoming clear that this stromal tissue is not a bystander in disease initiation and progression. Cancer-stroma interactions effect tumorigenesis, angiogenesis, therapy resistance and possibly the metastatic spread of tumor cells. Therefore, targeting the tumor stroma, in combination with chemotherapy, is a promising new option for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. In this course, we will discuss in depth the following issues: 1) How can stromal activity be used to detect early steps of carcinogenesis? 2) What is the effect of perpetual extracellular tissue formation and deposition on angiogenesis and tissue perfusion? 3) How can stroma impact on therapy resistance? 4) What is the impact of stroma on metastatic spread of tumor cells? 5) Does tumor stroma also have functions to locally confine the tumor?
