Previously titled ‘Immune Responses to Infection & Cancer’, this course aims to connect PUMC graduate students with world-leading researchers from the Oxford University through lectures delivered by Oxford Professors. We will further knowledge through interactive sessions delivered by postdoctoral researchers, giving students further opportunities to engage with Oxford University staff.

 

Students are set three assignments across the course to determine their understanding:

-       1500-word essay about a clinical research topic

-       Group presentation on a selected topic related to clinical research

-       Multiple-choice quiz at the end of the course
