Course summary

This MRes 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 course 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. This MRes is designed for aspiring researchers – 75% of the 2015-16 cohort are currently studying for a PhD. Those in employment have entered into roles such as Research Scientist, Research Assistant, and Scientific Officer.
