Literature will be identified and objectives for study progression developed on an individual basis tailored to the field of research the student will work in.

Learning outcome

The student should be able to explore, problematize, present and discuss a targeted scientific problem within the field of biomedical laboratory science. The student should be able to write a scientific report and discuss the scientific content of the project orally. The student should be able to work together with scientific personnel on relevant scientific problems.

Learning methods and activities

Training in experimental research which will lead into independent work on a research question guided by staff in a research group. The work is written up in a scientific report. This can be done in small groups of 2-4 students or as an individual project. In addition, the student will give an oral presentation of his/her work and results. Estimated workload: 870 hours.
