The Master of Science in Cancer Biology administered by Drexel University College of Medicine trains graduate students in cancer research methods alongside leading scientists at The Wistar Institute. Embracing an interdisciplinary approach, this advanced degree delves into the study of cancer from multiple lenses in which Wistar is a leading cancer research expert. Master’s students in this academic program can take part in research projects alongside our innovative scientists, postdoctoral fellows, and trainees in our Molecular and Cellular Oncogenesis Program; Immunology, Microenvironment, and Metastasis Program; and Gene Expression and Regulation Program. This degree is designed for science students who aim to pursue a career in basic science research in academia and industry settings. By delving into the mechanisms and pathways underpinning the biology of cancer at Wistar, students are surrounded by cutting-edge research techniques and technology and immersed in an innovative and nurturing laboratory environment.
Along with The Wistar Institute, Drexel University’s Master of Science in Cancer Biology collaborates with Fox Chase Cancer Center and Lankenau Institute for Medical Research.
