The aim of this module is to provide a capstone experience to students¿ learning, through participating in their own enquiry-based research project. Depending on the student's employability strand within the programme, the project may be laboratory, data, or education-based, but it will always involve a research question that is drawn from the literature, focused on a topic relevant to medical science. It will ask a novel research question and involve the critical analysis of research findings. Students will refine their oral and written communication skills to a graduate level through creating an introductory presentation on the project background, and a written dissertation and oral presentation on their research conclusions.
This module provides a broad overview of various research methods, approaches and ethical considerations that could be used within the life sciences (with a specific focus on nanomedicine). This includes formulating answerable questions, searching for evidence and critical appraisal, research design decision making, introduction to statistical analysis and research ethics.
