Course summary

The Cancer Biology stream provides broad training in research and prepares you for a research career in the fight against cancer. The course embraces cutting-edge developments in the field: you will experience some of the most technologically advanced approaches currently being applied to the broad field of cancer research in a teaching programme that comprises both theoretical and practical elements.

The Cancer Biology stream comprises an initial 4/5-week taught component. This covers the cellular and molecular basis of cancer biology, plus an introduction to the clinical and pathological aspects of carcinogenesis. This information is covered through a series of lectures. It will be partly based on the lecturer's own research, making use of the excellent researchers we have at Imperial. Alongside lectures, there are a series of workshops covering key transferable skills such as the oral presentation of scientific data and grant writing. You will get an insight into the excellent project opportunities we have at Imperial, as well as those of our partner institutions (Crick Institute and Institute of Cancer Research). To facilitate your learning, we will provide you with a textbook and you will present assigned chapters and additional research in small groups to the rest of the cohort. These book chapter presentations will be spread out over the taught component of the course. You will then begin the first of two research placements of approximately 20 weeks each.

This MRes is designed for aspiring researchers. For example, 75% of the 2015-16 cohort studied for a PhD.
