Call for Research Projects (Biomedical Health & Life Science BSc Degree)
Professor Bill Watson invites proposals from investigators for 12 week research projects for undergraduate students in Stage 4 of our Biomedical Health and Life Science BSc degree programme.
As part of the Biomedical Health and Life Sciences BSc degree programme, stage 4 students undertake a 12 week research module in Semester 1 (September to December). The current stage 3 students have now identified a number of general research areas in which they would like to undertake their translational research projects in stage 4 (to commence September 2014).
The programme is now looking for research projects with a strong disease/translational focus in the following areas:
- Cardiovascular / Vascular
- Central Nervous System / Neurodegenerative Diseases
- Respiratory/Pulmonary Diseases
- Gastrointestinal Tract
- Neonatal Diseases
- HIV-related research
- Autoimmune/Inflammatory diseases
- System Biology
- Genetic Diseases/Rare Diseases
If you have research projects in these areas can you please contact Niall Holohan (Niall.email@example.com) with a title of the proposal by 29th November, 2013. Each PI will be asked to give a short 20 minute over view at the end of January in semester 2 to the group. Students will then be allocated a project matching their requested area of research interest as best as possible and the PI will also be asked to work with the student to prepare a proposal by the end of semester 2 as part of their Research Methods and Statistics Module.
If you have any questions please contact Bill Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org / 6733).
The projects are to be undertaken in the first Semester (Sept - Dec) of the next academic year (2014/2015).
