This course will provide an overview of the molecular mechanisms that underlie the development and maintenance of childhood cancers. It will also outline how information about the basic biology of childhood cancers is being used to develop better diagnostic tests, to monitor disease progression, to stratify patients for treatment with existing therapies, and to develop new molecularly targeted therapies.


The following areas will be covered:

  • Neuroblastoma
  • CNS tumours: gliomas, medulloblastomas, craniopharyngioma
  • Renal cancers: Wilms tumour
  • Leukaemias
  • Genome-wide transcriptome analysis and bioinformatics
  • Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) and leukaemia
  • Molecularly targeted therapies
  • Immunotherapy approaches


This course can be taken as a taster course or as a short course. Participants who successfully complete an ICH taster course are assessed and can gain UCL credit when they register for a full UCL postgraduate programme. They can also request a certificate of attendance if they so wish. Taster students wishing to convert credits earned at UCL to a Certificate, Diploma or Degree programme through ‘Accreditation of Prior Learning’ must apply within 5 academic years of taking the taster module. Participants who successfully complete a short course at ICH receive a certificate of attendance, but they are not assessed and do not receive UCL credit.


Short course participants need only register through the UCL Online Store to attend. Taster course participants will be required to complete a supplemental application form after completing their online registration.
