What topics will you cover?
This six week course examined three key questions about cancer diagnosis and treatment: Where have we come from? Where are we now? And where are we going? It looked at the biological basis of cancer, influences on causation, how it is detected and treated, and the development of new treatment strategies.
Learners gained insights into patients’ experiences, discussed key issues relating to this topic and also had the chance to undertake their own internet-based investigation into one of the developing areas of Epigenetics.
