Project Presentations - [10 Credits] (All Pathways)
This module is primarily designed to develop your skills on oral presentation and communication, both essential parts of your training as a research scientist. Another learning objective is that you will gain an appreciation of the enormous variety of research carried out here in the Medical School.
You will have 2 weeks to discuss your presentation with your research project supervisor and prepare a 20 minute presentation which includes:
- General background to the project and hypothesis being tested
- The hypothesis and aims of the project
- A description of the experimental techniques used
- A description and discussion of the results obtained so far
- Conclusions so far and clear details of future work
This module is placed 5 weeks after the start of the research projects, this is to ensure that you understand the nature of your research project and to prepare you with the necessary skills for giving a lab meeting presentation / seminar during your time with the research group. It is not expected that you will have lots of data to show at this point, and you will not be marked or assessed in any way on the number of results you have. However it is expected that you understand why you have done the work you are presenting and understand and explain the future direction of your project.
