Stage 2 ( Block 1- Block 4 )

1. Mechanisms of Pathology

This module aims to equip learners with the knowledge on the molecular and cellular principles underlying pathology. Students will apply fundamental knowledge to describe, at the cellular and molecular level, how the immune system responds to infection or damage can have beneficial or detrimental outcomes. Learners will be exposed to molecular mechanisms of pathology including cell death, inflammation, cell proliferation, genetic diseases and proteinopathies.

Final Stage ( Block 5 - Block 8)

5. Cancer Biology

This module aims to provide in depth understanding of Cancer biology including its nomenclature, causes, metastasis and the basis for conventional and novel therapies and development of resistance.  It equips learners to understand various cancer treatments and cell resistance.
