Subject Description
A research project will be allocated to 4th year students enrolled in the Bachelor of Medical Biotechnology and Bachelor of Medical Biotechnology Advanced. Students will write a thesis on their supervised research project, and present their results in a seminar series. The subject will include a professional development component, with tutorials on bioinformatics, scientific paper writing, the preparation of a CV and job application, applications for animal ethics, grants and the use of genetically modified organisms.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. design and perform experiments that contribute new information to a scientific area of relevance to medical biotechnology;
2. critically analyse the results of experiments, using a range of statistical approaches;
3. communicate the outcomes of their research project to other medical researchers, both in written and oral formats; and
4. prepare a range of applications relevant to the medical research profession: animal ethics application, grant application, a CV, job application.
