Translational Cancer Medicine enables you to gain detailed knowledge and understanding of research methods applied to rational drug design, clinical study design, molecular and cell biology, tumour immunology, genetics and cancer imaging. Practical experience gained through two six-month laboratory rotations.
- The range of topics including advanced imaging methods is unique for this translational cancer programme.
- The sponsoring laboratories and departments all have international standing and have agreed to closely supervise the trainees.
- Figures released in October 2007 by The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) show that King's College London is the most successful university in the country in terms of PhD completion rates and this programme will potentially select candidates for the PhD programme within the Division of Cancer Studies.
