Cancer is a complex disease with numerous causal factors, diagnostic approaches and therapeutics. This is a growing area of concern across the world, as cancer becomes a leading cause of death in the G20, BRIC countries, and the developing world.
As treatment of cancer moves progressively faster towards personalised medicine, a new BSc/MSci in Cancer Sciences, the first of its kind worldwide, seeks to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to understand this disease, from its basic scientific principles through to its translation into new therapeutics and drug development.
Our new courses have been warmly welcomed by industry collaborators, who have expressed their need to recruit highly trained graduates with excellent research skills.
We welcome home and international students with an interest in medical research and a desire to undertsand the cancer research field.
