Why study this course?
The Cancer Immunotherapy programme at London Metropolitan University will teach you about conventional cancer therapies including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. You’ll have access to highly qualified researchers and teachers in pharmacology and immunology, as well as those from our Cellular and Molecular Immunology Research Centre. We’ll encourage you to join professional societies so you can improve your CV and build upon the impressive skills you’ll already have developed from research projects on the course. By the end of this postgraduate course, you’ll come to understand why investigators and oncologists now believe immunotherapy combined with pharmacological treatments will soon provide curative therapies that can give patients a new lease of life.
After the course
As a graduate of this course, you’ll be well prepared to work for companies that are developing cancer immunotherapies. Such companies include global biopharmaceutical company Bristol-Myers Squibbs, MERCK, AstraZeneca and Roche. There are also an an ever-growing number of start-up companies that are tackling cancer, including Vyriad, UNUM Therapeutics and Alpine Immune Sciences.
You’ll also have ample opportunity for future postgraduate study within the School of Human Sciences and the Cellular and Molecular Immunology Research Centre at the MPhil/PhD level, as well as research opportunities with partners within the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
