It provides advanced education and training in the principles of scientific research and the current state of knowledge and techniques used in the field of biomedical research. Students learn to search for and critically evaluate scientific literature relevant to their chosen discipline, to plan and design scientific experiments, and to develop advanced written and verbal communication skills. Each student is expected to carry out a laboratory based research project during the year. At the end of the year the project outcomes are to be written up as a thesis using a form similar to that required for publication of research data. Each student will be required to give a formal presentation of their research at the end of the year, followed by an oral defence of their findings and conclusions.
