Module code


Semester: 2

Credits: 15

This module will provide a firm grounding in key molecular mechanisms and pathways underpinning proliferation and survival relevant to the development of cancer and other disease-related themes at Levels 3 and 4. Additionally, to provide an insight into the experimental approaches that have advanced the field of cancer biology.

After successful completion of this module you will develop a knowledge and understanding of cancer-relevant signalling mechanisms including their modulation of gene expression, underlying the control of cell proliferation, cell cycling and programmed cell death.
