    A good all round overview of cancer and cancer medicines. As an older person, not looking to return to University, I found the course easy to follow, with plenty of additional references, both from the educators and from other students. I would recommend this course, along with the other on-line courses in the series, to anyone hoping to study chemistry, medicine or medicinal chemistry.

    It is quite helpful. It's an eye opener to a lot of cancer types, researches and tremendous progress for the possible cure for cancer. It also gives a sigh of relief to those people suffering from cancer and hope of a possible cure for their type of cancer.

    I am a community health nurse working in a cancer screening program. I know nothing about the cancer drugs that are used for treatment. This course was excellent for providing basics and for pointing me in the right direction and motivating me to learn more.

    The course makes suitable sense, engaging, informative and compelling. For having concerns in exploring cancers medicine, it's very okay for others like me to take their own benefits as well from this particular course.

    Christina is taking this course right now, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    As a cancer patient about to start chemotherapy and targeted therapies I wanted to understand more about the treatments I am about to start. I found it very interesting and pitched about right for what I need to know.
