Cancer Biology Masters (MSc): Facilities

More about our modern teaching environment

Cancer Biology MSc students have access to a range of laboratory facilities at our Penrhyn Road campus, where this course is based. These include tissue culture laboratories, molecular biology laboratories and cell biology laboratories. In addition to the subject specific laboratories, students also have the opportunity to use faculty-based laboratories, including analytical chemistry facilities and instrumentation, computing and data analysis resources.

Specialist equipment includes:

  • RT-PCR and DNA manipulation facilities;
  • state-of-the-art image analysis, including scanning electron and confocal microscopy equipment;
  • specialist histology; and
  • staining and protein analysis equipment.

Being part of a large, broad-based University means students will also get the chance to use facilities from other faculties. For example, our students visit the virtual radiotherapy facilities in the School of Radiography. Links with industry and research institutes afford further opportunities to become familiar with specialist equipment.

Access to this type of highly specialised scientific equipment ensures that students get practical, hands-on-experience of current research techniques, which equips them for further study or for work in cancer-related fields. All of the facilities are supported by dedicated technicians and experienced staff.

In addition, the Learning Resource Centre offers:

  • subject libraries, plus a free inter-library loan scheme to other libraries in the Greater London area;
  • online database subscriptions; and
  • a growing selection of resource materials.

Dedicated graduate facilities

You can also use the dedicated Graduate Centre on campus. This includes:

  • additional IT facilities;
  • seminar rooms;
  • social spaces and a canteen; and
  • a learning resource centre with specialist libraries.
