This list enlists the current modules we offer

Research project

The research project enables students to experience contemporary research methods by engaging them to design a research programme and perform experiments, surveys, or other research activities aimed at solving a specific molecular pathology problem. Each student will be allocated an academic supervisor with whom they will discuss the project prior to commencement. Students will first collect, analyse data, read and collate previous results relevant to their project, then embark on a period of laboratory based research before preparing, writing and submitting a scientific paper. They will write a clear and concise report and will discuss their work with academic members during an oral presentation. The principal activities will be completion of the practical work and submission of a final report in the form of a dissertation and presentation.
