The course comprises an initial eight week taught component in which the cellular and molecular basis of cancer biology are covered plus an introduction to the clinical and pathological aspects of carcinogenesis. Students will receive the official course book Biochemistry of Signal Transduction and Regulation by Gerhard Krauss. Within this period will also be a series of workshops covering key transferable skills such as oral presentation of scientific data and grant writing.
This is followed by two separate 19-week research placements (Sample of recent research projects titles ) within the recently created Imperial College Cancer Research UK Centre, the Faculty of Medicine at the Hammersmith Hospital campus of Imperial College and other collaborating institutes across London (Institute of Clinical Sciences, Cancer Research UK London Reseach Institute).
