Course content

The Division of Cancer Studies has a multidisciplinary research portfolio that maps onto and spans the entire cancer patient journey. The strategic objective of the Division is to foster a culture of innovation in cancer patient care through research excellence. To achieve this we are working towards a fully integrated cancer research pathway, breaking down traditional clinical/academic boundaries and drawing together members of the Division and colleagues from our associated Hospital Trusts. This is reflected in the coordinated strategic planning that has laid the foundations for the Integrated Cancer Centre.
