Rticle pogression of cancer through newspaper articles. (Summary)
Imagine you are a science writer for Science, Nature or Cell. Using the
scientific papers and lecture notes from one of the three course modules (stem cells,
cancer or infectious disease), write a scientific news account explaining developments in
the chosen field. Your aim should be to summarize, for a general audience, how the field
has progressed scientifically during the time period covered by the course (i.e. 1998-2008
for the stem cells module).
Students taking the course for undergraduate credit are only required to use the course
readings in their paper (though they are welcome to incorporate outside readings).
Paper should follow either MLA or APA guidelines for citation. Either footnotes or
endnotes are acceptable. Just please be consistent.
