Module overview

This module will build on key components of Research Skills in Biomedical Sciences 1 (MEDI6049) where students learn to develop a research hypothesis and project in addition to statistical methodology.

This module will enable students to gain understanding and develop the skills required to design and write up a research proposal for their three year PhD project proposal. You will construct a research hypothesis for your PhD project and develop this into a research proposal including a background section, statement of the problem, research hypothesis with aims and objectives, what types of data will be collected,organising data sets and consider how to analyse these, present the data and statistical findings appropriately and what research impact these findings might have

The course is taught through a combination of initial lectures with interactive sessions and presentations based on your first rotation project, prospective meetings with your PhD project supervisor to discuss the development of your proposal and mainly independent study. At the end of this module, you should understand how to analyse a variety of types of data, and to be able to evaluate the analysis of data in published research.
