Course summary


The School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences comprises of the Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC) and the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (IPS).The Institute of Pharmaceutical Science has three main research themes of Drug Discovery; Medicines Development and Delivery; and Medicines Use. Within the Comprehensive Cancer Centre there are thirteen research programmes and 20 research groups. We collaborate extensively with scientists and clinicians across KCL and within King’s Health Partners (KHP).

Course detail

The overarching objective of the Comprehensive Cancer Centre is to combine research excellence with innovations in clinical practice to improve cancer patient care and therefore our research goes from basic biological research through to translational cancer research to clinical trials. We have a particular focus on tumour microenvironment, imaging and immunotherapy, which are the themes of our Cancer Research UK King's Health Partners' Cancer Centre'. Each of the three themes within IPS includes clusters of research activity, some of which have evolved during the past decade (e.g., drug delivery, chemical biology, pharmaceutical biophysics, pharmacology), and some of which have joined KCL more recently such as enhanced activity in anticancer and anti-infective drug discovery, nanomedicines, substance abuse, health psychology, and clinical pharmacy. Researchers within and across the three themes interact both informally and via joint initiatives to promote cross-disciplinary research. Students work alongside researchers and are supervised by two members of academic staff. Each student has a dedicated Thesis Progression Committee that monitors the students’ progress and gives advice and support. KCL offers a large number of training and skills development opportunities. Participation in the annual Postgraduate Research Symposium is compulsory for all students and provides an opportunity to improve science communication and presentation skills. Opportunities are available for postgraduate students to present their work at national and international scientific meetings. Our postgraduate students also have the opportunity to assist with teaching of undergraduates as demonstrators in practical classes or by leading tutorials.
