This topic aims to deepen the student's understanding of research methods and ethics through the application of this knowledge to a scientific research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor. Through participation in research activities, students will acquire a defined body of evidence-based knowledge from established biological, clinical, epidemiological, social and/or behavioural sciences. Research activities may include, but are not limited to, conducting a literature review; laboratory work; data collection and analysis; and reporting of results. Students will work independently and/or in groups to conduct either primary or secondary research or critical appraisal exercises in collaboration with research teams, organisations, and community groups. Assessment reinforces this learning through reflection and communication tasks.
This topic aims to deepen the student's understanding of research methods and ethics and the principles that underpin socially responsible scientific research, through the application of this knowledge to supervised research activities undertaken as part of an approved research project.
