This PhD course is aimed at PhD students working within the field of translational cancer research and clinical cancer research. The course will cover several topics related to translational cancer research, including basic science methodologies, statistics and bioinformatics and clinical research. The basic science lectures will cover topics like tumour heterogeneity, liquid biopsies and model systems as well as the currently used methods to elucidate these topics. The bioinformatic lectures will focus on development of work-flows for personalized medicine, challenges in database structures, cancer commons, and interpretation of sequencing data. The clinical research will discuss contemporary cancer treatments and current needs, research based on clinical data, drug development and ethics in personalized medicine.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
