The National Cancer Institute's Basic
and Biobehavioral Research Branch seeks
to expand the frontiers of cancer prevention and control
through basic behavioral science.
The Branch is committed to building the capacity
of researchers to study stress physiology
and consequent regulation of cancer biology.
These training modules review the fundamentals
of cancer biology and outline the principle components
of stress biology most relevant
to our contemporary understanding
of the relationship between stress and cancer.
These modules highlight the most relevant tumor types
and cancer biology processes most vulnerable
to stress regulation;
and delineate the molecular mechanisms and pathways
of stress-mediated effects on cancer biology.
Through these training modules, it is NCI's goal
to stimulate research and stress regulation of cancer biology.
