Anatomy/Physiology 1 – Choose a membrane type, and explain it.

Overview
Throughout this module, we have observed that form follows function. All cells are made up of a similar composition of subcellular structures, yet size, shape, and texture varies tremendously and are directly correlated to what they do. Cancer is a pathological condition that occurs when cells no longer behave within normal parameters. This assignment will address how we can begin to understand cancer and treatments through the study of cells and tissues.
You should spend approximately 3.5 hours on this assignment.
Instructions

Choose a membrane type from the following types: mucous, serous, cutaneous, synovial.
Prepare a written paper of at least 1000 words that includes:

Describe structure and function of your chosen tissue type, include locations in body and which four of the main tissue types it belongs to.
Identify a specific type of cancer that affects your chosen tissue type and discuss pathological changes in your chosen tissue type at both gross and histological levels.
Describe how subcellular features disrupt the cell cycle, which leads to development of the cancer type identified in part B.
Examine how current therapies attempt to address this disruption in the cell cycle.
Differentiate how the body responds differently to a tissue injury vs cancer.

Your paper should be formatted as a proper research paper with an introduction and conclusion. Do not simply follow the bullet points above, but really think about what you have learned and how that relates to other material we have covered, and knowledge you have from other courses you may have taken. The Research and Report assignments in this course are capstone assignments for each module. You should be integrating everything that you learned in the textbook, explorations, discussions, and lab activities into your papers.
All references must be cited using APA Style format. Please refer to the CCCOnline APA Citation Toolkit. 
Use what you have learned from this module to complete the assignment. In some cases, you may need to conduct additional research. See the Grading and Evaluation section in the Syllabus module for links to research databases in the CCCOnline Library.  
Submit your paper to the Module 2 Assignment: Research and Report assignment folder.
