With worldwide cancer rates increasing and expected to reach 22 million new cases per year by 2030, this postgraduate course introduces you to how radiotherapy, surgery and chemotherapy have a vital role to play in prolonging the lives of patients.
We’ll provide you with an in-depth understanding of the molecular targets at which the different classes of anticancer drugs are aimed, and of how drug therapies are evolving. You’ll also review the biology of cancer with respect to genetics, pathological considerations and the molecular changes within cells which are associated with the progression of the disease.
You'll be taught by staff who are experienced researchers in areas such as cancer biology, immunology, genetics and bioinformatics. They will help you learn how to collect, analyse, interpret and understand scientific data you must make use of in the cancer pharmacology field. This ensures you’ll not only improve your intellectual knowledge but your practical skills as well.
By the end of the London Metropolitan University’s Cancer Pharmacology, you will have developed a deep understanding of how chemotherapeutic agents are used to target and kill cancer cells as part of a central strategy in the treatment of cancers.
After the course
Our graduates primarily go on to pursue a career in anti-cancer drug development in academia or the pharmaceutical industry. The programme also provides an excellent basis for further research or study.
