What will I learn?

Course description

Our MSc Cancer Research and Molecular Biomedicine course will give you thorough training in this area alongside lab-based research placements.

As this is a research-focused master's course, you will take an interactive approach to learning through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and research placements rather than traditional lectures.

You will take three transferable skills units covering topics such as experimental design and statistics and science communication, as well as two research placements in the labs of leading researchers working on various processes relating to tumourigenesis. These include:

  • understanding cell cycle control mechanisms and how they are disrupted in the formation of a tumour;
  • investigating the cell fate choices of normal cells, and how these differ in cancer cells;
  • investigating how cell signals regulate gene expression in different types of cells, and how this flow of information is compromised in cancer cells.

If you want to broaden your expertise beyond molecular cancer research, you can undertake a research placement in another area of molecular biomedicine.

Teaching and learning

We use a range of teaching and learning methods, including tutorials, workshops, seminars and research placements.

Career opportunities

The extensive laboratory experience you will gain on this course will equip you for a future career in bioscience research.

The University has a strong record of placing students in PhD programmes at Manchester and other universities, and several of our graduates have pursued research careers in industry.
