Cancer Assignment

You and your lab group will research one of the types of cancer listed below and give a PowerPoint
presentation to the class based on your findings. Use the key areas as a guide for the type of information
I will be looking for in your group presentation. Only one lab group may report on any one cancer so
selection of topics is on a first-come basis.

Presentations will take place in class on Monday, March 30 and are to be approximately 10 minutes in
length with comments/questions to follow. Originality and creativity will be rewarded. The only written
material that your lab group will need to turn in is a typed bibliography/works cited. Please keep in mind
that this assignment is worth fifty points.
