Module overview

This module is designed to provide an overview of the cellular and molecular biology of cancer and will run alongside the Immunology module in semester 1 to provide the foundations for the cancer immunology and immunotherapy module in semester 2. As a multidisciplinary field, this module will provide a basic introduction to cell biology before exploring how dysregulation in cellular processes and genetic variation results in tumour formation, and the landscape of current diagnostics and conventional treatments.
