About the course

This programme gives you a thorough grounding in the scientific principles underlying cancer treatment.

You’ll discover how new treatments are developed, evaluated and implemented. By the end of the course you’ll be equipped with a thorough knowledge of cancer biology and pathology, research methodologies, drug development, and regulatory issues.

You’ll have a firm grounding in the use and evaluation of cancer therapies, which will enhance your career prospects in many areas of cancer research, including early phase clinical trials. 

You’ll also take a three-month dissertation under the supervision of one of our research experts. This may involve setting up a ‘mock’ clinical trial to gain experience of clinical research and drug development in the cancer setting.
