The MSc in Radiobiology is a one-year, full-time, course, designed for individuals who are interested in a career in academic research in radiobiology or radiation oncology, or have an interest in professions that require a knowledge of radiobiology, such as radiation protection.  

The main aim of this course is to combine the principles of radiobiology at molecular and cellular level with their clinical applications, providing a thorough grounding in radiobiology for MSc students, who may go on to a research degree, to complete a medical degree, or into an industry role or allied profession.

The MSc leadership team is comprised of a Course Director and a Course Teaching Fellow:

  • Dr Monica Olcina, Course Director and Group Leader in the Department of Oncology (Immune Radiation Biology). 
  • Dr Tom Whyntie MIPEM, Director of Studies and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Oncology, Advising researcher in MR Linac (imaging physics); and data management consultant (clinical trials, imaging data).
