Course summary

The PhD in the Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences will provide you with the skills needed to contribute to research in the areas of cell and molecular biology, immunology and virology. Our extensive research programme brings together scientists and clinicians to define basic mechanisms of cell and molecular biology, and then determine how the normal programme of cell growth and differentiation is usurped in cancer. You will work amongst the very best researchers to produce original and distinctive globally leading research, with the ultimate goal to design and rigorously assess new and proven cancer treatments. In so doing, you will play a significant role in accelerating the ultimate control of cancer. This program is intended for students who wish to obtain high quality research training that will enable them to conduct independent investigative research. By studying in the Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences you will be joining over 100 postgraduate research students covering a wide range of topics including: translational and fundamental aspects of cancer; cancer biology; genomics; epigenomics; genome biology; genetics of rare diseases. You will work closely with your supervisory team who will help you clarify your project and support your development. Your thesis will represent an original contribution to knowledge and demonstrate independent judgement.
