Course content

Our Cancer Biology stream provides broad training in research and prepares you for a research career in the fight against cancer.

The course embraces cutting-edge developments in the field: you will experience some of the most technologically advanced approaches currently being applied to the broad field of cancer research in a teaching programme that comprises both theoretical and practical elements.

We offer two streams in Cancer Biology:
  • Cancer Biology - MRes Cancer Biology (this course)
  • Cancer Informatics - MRes Cancer Biology (Cancer Informatics).

Your choice of stream will inform the modules you study and your choice of research projects. The structure of the course and assessment methods are similar for both streams.
