Course Description

We offer a range of postgraduate education opportunities including both research and taught programmes. Opportunities are available on a full- or part-time basis leading to the qualifications of MD, PhD, MPhil, MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate. Continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities are also available as short study programmes.

Cancer Sciences remains a major research strength within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, as evidenced by the fact that 80% of our RAE 2008 submission in the area of Cancer Studies was considered internationally excellent or world leading.

Particular strengths include cancer cell signalling, the DNA damage response, gene and immunotherapy and cancer viruses.

Structural Biology and Biomarkers
Cancer Cell Biology
Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics
