Research Skills in Biological Sciences module (BS41005)
The aim of this module is to use the vibrant research environment of the School of Life Sciences, James Hutton Institute and Medical Research Institute at Ninewells to expand your experience of current research and give you the opportunity to be part of the wider research culture. Students likewise can engage with science communication, group research and data analysis projects. You will gain knowledge of the current leading areas of research in Life Sciences; enhance your scientific communication skills through writing; and gain experience of grant proposal writing.
You will prepare a grant proposal in relation to your own research project which will then be presented to and assessed by a panel of current researchers. Following attendance at seminars, you will be able to produce abstracts summarising the subject of at least two of these seminars.
This semester culminates in a research symposium which takes place in the final week of the semester.
