Embark on your career in cancer research. Our course offers perfect training to develop as a leading researcher and our individualised approach to learning will prepare you for a career in research or to pursue a PhD.
Our course will give you a real understanding of the application of molecular approaches to the diagnoses, prevention and treatment of cancers. You’ll also undertake a research project, targeting a specific area of cancer biology, working alongside our team of leading experts.
**Make an impact**
Our course is designed to equip you with the expertise needed to pursue a career in research. You’ll study and develop in a research centre that makes significant contributions to the understanding and treatment of the disease, learning from expert staff. This will prepare you for a career where you can make an impact through your own investigation, increasing understanding and ultimately improving outcomes for patients.
|Level||RQF Level 7|
BSc 1st class or 2i, or equivalent (for example a pass in MBChB, BDS), in a relevant scientific discipline which would normally be one of the biological sciences but a natural sciences graduate will be considered. Subject to University regulations MBChB or BDS students who had completed 3 years of study would be eligible to intercalate.
A major objective of the coures is to train you to formulate your own ideas and express them logically, and this will be tested in every module assessment.
A typical module will be assessed by two assignments. Assessments include written assignments, as well as delivering presentations and posters, and leading discussions.
The MSc course comprises 180 credits. You may choose to exit the programme at an earlier stage, with either a PG Certificate (60 credits) or a PG Diploma (120 credits).
The MSc Cancer Biology and Therapy will explore the molecular mechanisms of cancer and how such understanding applies in diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
On completion of the course, you will gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the principles and application of cancer research and the basis of therapy. The subject encompasses many of the areas at the forefront of advances in applied biomedical sciences.
This is an exciting opportunity to:
• Get a thorough understanding of cancer biology and therapy driven by the most current research.
• Use the latest techniques in molecular biology, immunology, cell biology and chemistry applicable to cancer biology and therapy.
• Conduct your own research project within one of our internationally renowned institutes.
• Generate results with scientific impact and have the potential to improve cancer outcomes.
• Evaluate critically current issues in cancer research and therapy, and how to translate research findings into therapeutic applications.
This course is mainly taught at St James’s University Hospital
