London Metropolitan University
The course is to provide 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; 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; enhance intellectual and practical skills necessary for the collection, analysis, interpretation and understanding of scientific data; deliver a programme of advanced study to equip students for a future career in anti-cancer drug development.
Applicants require a lower 2nd (2.2) UK 1st degree in an appropriate subject, for example pharmacology, pharmacy, biomedical science, biological science or medical genetics. These will be considered on an individual basis. Equivalent overseas qualifications will also be accepted. Applicants must have studied courses with biology and chemistry content, including animal cell biology/biochemistry. They should preferably have some knowledge of metabolism and pathology, but this would not be essential. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in all components), TOEFL 580, CBT TOEFL 237 or equivalent.
Modules include: Molecular oncology; cancer pharmacology; cancer (diagnosis and treatment); molecular genetics; scientific frameworks for research; research project. Optional modules: drug discovery technology; advanced drug formulation technologies; bioinformatics and molecular modelling.
Assessment is based on a combination of coursework, which includes tests and essays, the research project and its oral defence and examination.
