About

You can conduct your research degree within the Division of Cancer and Genetics. Research in Cancer and Genetics, at Cardiff University, is driven for the benefit of patients affected by cancer and by inherited disease.

Overview

The Cancer and Genetics programme strategy is to drive research for the benefit of patients affected by cancer and by inherited disease in Wales and beyond. 

The programme of research maps onto the translational research pathway ranging from fundamental science through to pre-clinical testing of new therapeutic agents as well as early and late phase clinical trials. Our translational research focuses on the genetic and molecular basis of human disease within a central theme of cancer. 

Features

The Division of Cancer and Genetics from at Cardiff University, provides expertise and facilities to conduct research into human genetics and disease, prognostic and diagnostic markers for cancer, novel therapies for solid organ and haematological cancers, metastasis, cancer immunology and cancer cell biology.

The programme will lead to a research degree in cancer and / or genetics that could be used in a variety of academic, clinical and industrial settings.
