About Cancer Molecular Pathology and Therapeutics at Postgraduate Science at Leicester

This full time postgraduate degree will equip you with the knowledge, expertise and experience to make a real difference in the understanding and treatment of cancer. You will study the mechanistic nature of cancer biology and apply that knowledge to the analysis and understanding of risk, prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. Building on a solid foundation of learned basic cancer cell biology, you will consider and experience the design of treatment modalities and prevention strategies, including the mechanisms of action of anti-cancer drugs and radiation treatment, therapy resistance and biomarker discovery.

The course comprises three months of intensive lectures, tutorials and taught lab work, followed by a further month of advanced topic lectures delivered by scientists at the cutting-edge of translational research, focusing on therapeutics and prevention. A key component of the course is then the five to six month research project, which will give you the opportunity to study and research one of the department's key research areas in much greater depth. As well as developing your understanding of the processes and techniques used in cancer research, you will learn how to critically analyse research data and research papers and how to communicate complex scientific concepts and processes.
