Overview

##

This course will introduce you to the topic of cancer chemotherapy, and how the development of effective medications for the treatment of cancer remains a significant challenge to scientists.

You will research the use and development of cancer medicines, focusing on chemotherapy. In addition, through an exploration of how science is communicated to the general public, you will also look at the skills you need to become an effective science writer.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

A good all round overview of cancer and cancer medicines. As an older person, not looking to return to University, I found the course easy to follow, with plenty of additional references, both from the educators and from other students. I would recommend this course, along with the other on-line courses in the series, to anyone hoping to study chemistry, medicine or medicinal chemistry.

It is quite helpful. It's an eye opener to a lot of cancer types, researches and tremendous progress for the possible cure for cancer. It also gives a sigh of relief to those people suffering from cancer and hope of a possible cure for their type of cancer.

The course makes suitable sense, engaging, informative and compelling. For having concerns in exploring cancers medicine, it's very okay for others like me to take their own benefits as well from this particular course.
