MSc Molecular Pathology of Cancer (Blended Learning)

Molecular Pathology (MP) is a rapidly growing discipline in 21st-century medicine. It integrates genomics and bioinformatics with modern pathology to underpin molecular diagnostics, theranostics and clinical trials delivery within the academic, health services and industry sectors in an era of precision medicine.

These exciting, innovative blended and distance learning programmes are aimed to enhance the participant’s theoretical knowledge and practical skills in MP and to empower them to pursue a career in academia, healthcare or industry. The programmes have a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship.

The programmes have been developed with a number of options in order to provide maximum flexibility of training. PgCert Molecular Pathology of Cancer candidates take the three modules delivered between September and January. PgDip candidates can take the Diploma in Molecular Pathology of Cancer and if successful can chose to progress to Masters level instead of graduating with the award. MSc candidates can take the Certificate/Diploma/MSc in Molecular Pathology of Cancer, which will provide a solid foundation for those wishing to study MP at Ph.D. level. The full-time MSc is also available as an intercalated degree for Medical and Dental students.... [-]

About

Do you have a clear and specific interest in cancer, stem cells or developmental biology? Join our program and combine research in oncology, molecular developmental biology, and genetics. Discover the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signaling, gene regulation, evolution, and development as they relate to health and disease.

Contribute to a Better Understanding of Disease Treatment and Prevention

Given that fundamental developmental processes are so often impacted by the disease, an understanding of these processes is vital to the better understanding of disease treatment and prevention. Adult physiology is regulated by developmental genes and mechanisms which, if deregulated, may result in pathological conditions.... [-]

MSc in Clinical Oncology

This is a programme for healthcare professionals from diverse backgrounds who wish to expand their knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects of oncology. The full-time programme is particularly suitable for medical professionals with an interest in clinical, medical, surgical and translational oncology.

Details

The aim of this programme is to give you a scientific understanding of the cellular and molecular biology of cancer, its epidemiology and pathology, and to place this in a clinical context. We will then address how this knowledge effects therapeutic approaches and disease management.

The programme aims to allow you to understand the research process, drawing on examples within the department and its associated clinical trials unit. A key part of the Master's programme is the planning, execution and reporting of a piece of independent study leading to submission of a dissertation.

The course tries at all levels to encourage interactive rather than didactic learning and lecturing. Therefore, this Masters level programme will require you not only to assemble and learn facts but also to consider some of the philosophical challenges which underlie the treatment of cancer.... [-]
