Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences


Please note: Due to circumstances beyond our control, this course will unfortunately not run between 2024-26.

The University of Cambridge and The Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences launched the new and innovative MPhil in Therapeutic Sciences in Autumn 2018. We are currently recruiting for the third cohort of students, due to begin in October 2022.

This one-year full-time course will select a cohort of students with the skills, motivation and ability to excel to create the next generation of scientific and business leaders in the therapeutics and healthcare sector. The course is aimed at developing two types of mutually compatible future leaders:

Science Leaders: Those who make a decision to remain in science and who aspire to lead scientific teams, such as, but limited to, heads of genomics, biology, therapeutic development & innovation and clinical development, either within institutions or in pharma. These are the people who invent and discover the new technologies and therapies based on fundamental research.

Science Hunters: These are the scientific entrepreneurs who understand Science Leaders’ innovations and who chiefly know how to transform the inventions into innovations.

This highly multi-disciplinary course is co-developed and co-delivered by both University of Cambridge academics and world-leading industry experts.

For further information or any queries about the course you can contact us via the CATS email.

The University of Cambridge will be hosting the next Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day. Visit the Postgraduate Open Day page for more details
