Essentials in Experimental Research SeriesHow to Design a Research Project: Wet BenchResearch Training Centre & Research Core Facilities Oct 2, 2-3pm, LKS 240This presentation will introduce the use of the scientific methods as the basis of research inquiry. Discussion will center around practical aspects of project design such as developing a research question; generating a hypothesis and formulating specific objectives/aims. Understanding these fundamental aspects of the research process will also aid trainees in writing reports, manuscripts and thesis and presenting at committee meetings. This presentation is recommended for wet and dry bench trainees at all levels.
Essentials in Experimental Research SeriesHow to Design an Experiment Part 1 & 2Research Training Centre & Research Core Facilities Oct 9, 12-2pm, LKS 136 & Oct 16, 1-3pm, LKS 241The process of science is complex, non-linear (it contains cycles and loops), and does not follow a single prescribed path. At times it can be very messy! One important feature of science is that it is an ongoing process. Before embarking on your own full-fledged scientific investigations, this class will offer you some important considerations to keep in mind when designing your experiments.
Essentials in Experimental Research SeriesExperimental Documentation: Keeping a Lab BookResearch Training Centre & Research Core Facilities Oct 23, 12-1:30pm, LKS 216Dr. Di Ciano-Oliveira will present on how to keep a proper laboratory book/manual. In particular, what information should be recorded and how to annotate your experiments correctly.
