Learn a new way to enhance biology teaching and student learning using real-life biomedical technologies. This NGSS-aligned, National Institutes of Health-sponsored, free web-based approach to teaching basic biological concepts has students assume the role of oncologists who specialize in cancer treatment. Concepts are informed by a new field of medicine, “Oncofertility”, encompassing technologies to preserve fertility in patients before cancer treatment. Learn how to integrate cancer and therapies, cell division, anatomy, physiology, cryopreservation, fertility preservation, stem cells, ethics, and epigenetics into biology. Hands-on activities include exploring optimal cryopreservation solutions for storing tissues and a biomaterial that maintains 3-dimensional cellular structure.
