Course content

  • We investigate the responses of cells to genome damage and their relationship to cancer and other aspects of human disease.

    You’ll work in a dynamic and collaborative environment, using a range of instrumentation from microscopy to DNA sequencing to mass spectronomy.

    Our research is currently funded by a variety of agencies including:

    • Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council
    • Cancer Research UK
    • Medical Research Council
    • The Wellcome Trust.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected in our prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
