Aims/Description: This is an experimental project which will embed the students in a research group with biological question that can be addressed through imaging.This module will give students the opportunity to develop skills relevant to a career in physics research. Each student will work under the supervision of a member of academic staff and will formulate the hypothesis and questions to be addressed and plan and carry out experiments or simulations to test these hypotheses. The outcome of the project will be summarised in a dissertation and the student will keep a notebook of the research and deliver an oral presentation of their work.
