You'll also develop an understanding of the impact tumours have on the immune system and the immune system on tumours, as well as the business side of research.

Working with active cancer researchers and experts, you'll join the Centre for Cancer Sciences and undertake your own research project in the area of cancer immunology and biotechnology that interests you.
