Lead academic: Dr Carolyn Staton
Translational oncology is the process by which laboratory research informs the development of new treatments for cancer. It's a rapidly advancing field with massive therapeutic and commercial potential, and recent graduates have gone on to work in academic research science, pharmaceuticals, the biotech industry and the NHS among others.
Our MSc(Res) is taught by leading research scientists and clinicians. The course offers training in the theory and practice of translational oncology and provides you with transferable skills for your future career.
The course is designed so that students progressively achieve more advanced levels of learning and practice by giving a thorough grounding in the subject matter through five taught modules before leading you into the advanced research modules, namely the literature review and the six-month research project, for which you'll work as part of a team within the oncology research community at Sheffield.Intercalation
