Overview

Research at Liverpool

Fundamental research into the mechanisms leading to cancer development and progression with the aim of understanding the processes that lead to cancer development and which constitute potential therapeutic targets. This is achieved by translational research taking advantage of new and on-going clinical trials in cancer that combines existing therapies with novel approaches and uses predictive and prognostic biomarkers.

The Cancer Medicine programme offered at the University of Liverpool  can be thought of as a shorter version of the PhD. It requires the same research skills, training, planning, and project management. It can be a way to assess whether you wish to undertake doctoral research - or it can be taken for its own sake.
