60 Credits SPRING

Co-requisites: MED6030, MED6032

Aims/Description: You will spend five months on a laboratory project, working separately but under supervision, learning practical research skills, developing your scientific thinking and expression and writing up your work in a small thesis, which will be assessed. Your project will be taken from a handful that you have selected. There will always be more potential projects than students and they are vetted for appropriateness. Your Project will be relevant to the Neuroscience Pathway.
