This course will enhance your knowledge and understanding of cancer therapies and provide you with the skills to assess, analyse, critically appraise and evaluate current and emerging anti-cancer therapies and the drug discovery cascade, from target evaluation and engagement to clinical trials.

The programme was developed in response to the increasing demand for a course which focuses on current and emerging cancer therapies. It is the only programme in the UK which combines a focus on cancer biology with the practical, ethical and economic implications of personalised cancer therapy, along with its biology and the discovery and development of drugs.

It has been constructed to produce world-class graduates with the skills to contribute to the global drive in advancing cancer treatment through research, teaching, industry and public sector employment.

What you'll study

You'll focus on anti-cancer treatment therapies, with a particular emphasis on personalised medicine, covering the therapeutic target and the biological mechanisms of current and emerging anti-cancer therapies. You'll also explore radiotherapy as a diagnostic and as a single or combinational treatment with drugs in anti-cancer therapy.

You'll be introduced to the discovery and development of new drugs and the challenges associated with this process. You'll be able to evaluate the drug discovery pipeline including medicinal chemistry, screening, secondary assays and other drug discovery and development technologies. Through a virtual drug discovery programme, you'll have the opportunity to develop anti-cancer agents and progress these through the drug discovery cascade, from target engagement to clinical trials.

The programme will equip you with a range of skills including scientific writing, critical analysis, problem-solving, teamworking, as well as advanced data set analysis and interpretation. You'll experience a wide range of scientific topics from molecular biology, to cell biology and genetics, medicinal chemistry to formulation and radiobiology to nuclear medicine. You'll have the opportunity to conduct independent research and working as part of a multidisciplinary team you'll gain an appreciation of the contributions other disciplines make to cancer drug discovery. 

Facilities

The Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences is recognised as one of the foremost departments of its kind in the UK. It's a leading research centre in the search for new and improved medicines. You'll benefit from the advanced facilities of a new £36 million building. The Institute is ranked no 2 in the UK in the Complete University Guide 2018 and the University of Strathclyde has recently been one of the few UK institutes to be awarded the status of 'Emerging Centre of excellence for radiobiology research' in the UK.

Careers

Graduates will have a number of potential employment opportunities: large and small pharma companies, SMEs, within health services and providers, their home institutions and as academics in UK, EU or international Universities.

The course will enable careers in research, academia industry and the health sector and offers you a unique exposure to the entire drug discovery and development cascade while keeping patients' needs at the forefront of the learning process.

The Department of Medical Biophysics, an interdisciplinary department with three fields—Cellular and Molecular Biology, Medical Physics, and Molecular and Structural Biology—is located primarily at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, the Toronto Medical Discovery Tower, and the Sunnybrook Research Institute.

The department offers opportunities for research—leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees—in a variety of problems in medical science; projects which cut across the conventional boundaries of biology, physics, engineering, chemistry, and medicine are encouraged. The department emphasizes basic and applied research related to cancer. Projects include the following areas: tumour biology, radiobiology, membrane function, molecular interactions, gene expression, cell differentiation and growth control, viral and chemical carcinogenesis, cellular and molecular immunology, hemopoiesis, macromolecular structure via x-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy and electron microscopy, the physics and engineering of diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy, development of imaging and therapy systems using x-rays, ultrasound, nuclear magnetic resonance, light and electron optics.
