Course summary

The first year of this programme, the MRes in Cancer Biology, has research elements as well as additional training elements. The overall MRes programme is designed to give students a broad understanding of both the basic biology as well as clinical management of the whole spectrum of malignant disease. It also allows students to develop their own skills in experimental science as well as in project design and management.

The first year MRes degree comprises two research rotations, a weekly 'Lectures in Cancer Biology and Medicine' series, together with a week of intensive teaching in genomic medicine, and a one- to two-week placement in a patient-facing clinical setting. The placement will enable insight into the rewards and challenges of cancer research and development of diagnostics and treatments. Project write-ups, group presentations and the formation of a PhD proposal are also integral to the programme.

The MRes programme aims to introduce students to research skills and specialist knowledge as well as a more general grounding in cancer biology. Its main aims are: to give students with relevant experience at first-degree level the opportunity to carry out focussed research in the discipline under close supervision; and to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests. to give students a broad grounding in both the theory of cancer genomic medicine and also more insight into the practicalities of clinical cancer treatment and care.

Successful completion of the one-year MRes programme will lead directly on to a three-year PhD, usually in one of the rotation project host laboratories, which will allow in-depth study of a particular area of cancer biology.
