Aims: The aim of the unit is for the student a) to gain skills in setting up an hypothesis, b) to devise experiments designed to test that hypothesis, and c) to develop practical research skills in testing that hypothesis as part of a small research team.
On successful completion of this unit, the student should be able to: explain the background to the chosen research area, formulate the hypothesis to be addressed and select the means by which it is to be tested, generate original data and to analyse it appropriately, and to present conclusions drawn from the data in the form of a well organised and well argued report modelled on a research paper.
Study skills, handling information, working with others (T/F/A).
Communication skills (T/F/A).
Cognitive skills (T/F/A).
Students will be offered a choice of research project from a wide range of topics in the pharmaceutical sciences or pharmacy practice. Each project group will work as a small team with an academic supervisor.
