Course summary

The MRes is offered by the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre (CRUK CC) as a part-time course incorporating two long research placements with three short (1 week) periods out of the lab; one week to undertake an intense taught course in cancer genomics, one week to attend ‘Transferable Skills’ sessions and the third week offering industry shadowing opportunities. There is also a 36 week course (1 lecture per week) covering general principles of cancer biology as well as insight into how cancers that arise at different sites differ. The programme aims to introduce clinicians to research skills and specialist knowledge as well as a more general grounding in cancer biology.

Its main aims are: to give clinicians with relevant experience the opportunity to carry out focussed research in the discipline under close supervision; and to give them the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests; and to give clinicians a broad grounding in both the theory of cancer genomic medicine and also more insight into cancer research in an industrial setting.

The CRUK Cambridge Centre's innovative part-time MRes/PhD programme will train the cancer research leaders of the future across the widest possible range of disciplines, working together to make meaningful progress in this challenging and rewarding area.

At the end of the MRes/PhD programme, candidates will be prepared for a career at the forefront of clinical cancer research. The course design reflects our belief that, for this to happen, students need a much deeper and broader knowledge of cancer biology and its relationship to the clinic, as well as a breadth of experience of experimental work to make an informed choice of research area.
