Course content

Translational Cancer Medicine enables you to gain detailed knowledge and understanding of research methods applied to rational drug design, clinical study design, molecular and cell biology, tumour immunology, genetics and cancer imaging. You'll gain practical experience through two six-month laboratory rotations.

The study pathway offers unique opportunities for you to join experienced research teams and work on particular projects from the outset. This course will allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of research methods, and of how theoretical academic studies and skills relate to research projects.

You will explore Fundamentals of Translational Cancer Medicine, in both laboratory projects and lectures, providing you with advanced knowledge and skills to conceptualise, design, conduct and critically appraise specialist research.
