Module overview

This module will deliver a comprehensive analysis of selected topics associated with the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive cancer development and lead to tumour progression. This will involve exploring the genetic drivers of disease, the mechanisms of aneuploidy, how the immune system influences tumour development, the impact of disrupted cellular signalling pathways on cancer progression, and the mechanisms of tumour metastasis and invasion. In addition, genomic and proteomic research methods utilised to probe the underlying mechanisms of cancer will be discussed.
