According to the CDC, eight million people die from cancer around the world each year.

In this interactive book, Cancer Biology: An Inquiry-Based Approach examines different characteristics of cancer, and immediately follows up with questions to drive home the material being covered in the chapter.

Cancer Biology: An Inquiry-Based Approach not only covers the types of cancer, but the complexity of treating cancer, how different areas of life can affect cancer, and the history of cancer theories.

Available in print and eBook versions, Cancer Biology: An Inquiry-Based Approach:

  • Contains review questions that follow each chapter, allowing students to further apply the material covered
  • Uses Modeling Modules to explain figures and complex material
