This Professional Certificate (PCert) course will provide you with the knowledge of the cellular and molecular basis of cancer therapeutics such as gene editing. You will gain knowledge about the biology behind ZFN, TALENS, and CRISPR. You will also explore the latest applications and advances in cancer therapeutics.
In the first two modules, you’ll develop your core scientific and experimental skills across the breadth of cancer therapeutics including an overview of the latest cancer immunotherapy research and gene editing in cancer therapy.
In the last two modules, you will learn about the advances and recent applications of cancer therapeutics. You will also have the opportunity to use your skills and knowledge to work on a final project. This will give you the opportunity to develop your skills further in cancer research and therapeutics. This PCert is also a part of our 16-week Specialization + internship programme.
The online distance-learning delivery of the course will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers, material from our partners, and guest lectures.
