Module overview

The focus of this module is to provide students with skills that will support them to design an experiment, produce results and analyse data. Its focus will be on experimentation in the biomedical sciences, and will also cover experiments on animals and humans (clinical trials) and the setup of laboratory experiments. Students will learn about experimental design, and how to handle data in terms of statistical analysis and presentation. It will help students in their numerical skills and prepare them for any data analysis in the third and fourth year projects.
