Course summary

The Cancer Informatics stream offers world-class training in research at the interface of computational and clinical translational science. 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.

This page is primarily for the Cancer Informatics stream of the MRes Cancer Biology. For information on the Cancer Biology stream, please follow the link above. Your choice of stream will inform the modules you study and your choice of research projects. The structure of the course and assessment methods are similar for both streams.

Informatics broadly covers the handling and analysis of data. It is fast becoming one of the most desirable skills for postgraduate studies in biological fields. This is due to the widespread adoption of high-throughput molecular profiling technologies, in conjunction with the practice of uploading datasets to standard publicly-available online repositories. We will provide you with the skills to leverage these large biological and clinical datasets to address novel hypotheses in order to gain new insights into molecular biology and to have a competitive advantage over other biological students.

The course is made up of an initial 4/5-week taught component partly shared with the Cancer Biology stream. 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 in a series of lectures, which are inspired in part by the lecturer's own research.

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