Module overview

As part of the one year MRes in Stem cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine, all students will undertake two, 16-week research projects in different laboratories. This offers students the opportunity to develop a broad range of laboratory skills and to develop a well-rounded understanding of the field. Students will be offered as much choice as possible for the two projects, with information on project availability being provided by the module lead. Students will be encouraged to develop as wide a range of skills in order to gain as much from the programme.

Each student will have a clearly identified supervisor who will provide guidance and support in both the practical and theoretical elements of the project. Students will need to utilise appropriate research techniques to address a clear research question. In addition, students will be expected to develop a good understanding of the published literature within the specific field.

Assessment of the project will be through a poster presentation, a written 4000 word research report in the form of a scientific publication and a viva voce.
