Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry
This programme aims to provide students with a clear understanding of the molecular and cellular biology fundamental to cancer biology and cancer research.
Students will learn how research in this area has advanced the treatment and diagnoses of cancer, and gain knowledge of how new therapies are developed, evaluated and implemented.
This will be underpinned by a thorough knowledge of research methodologies and laboratory techniques.
The laboratory based research project is an integral component of the course, which will provide students with valuable experience of the research process, including preparation of a thesis, thus forming a solid foundation upon which a future career in scientific research can be built.
