|Non Allowed Subjects:||None|
|Core Participation Requirements:||
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study and reasonable steps will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. This subject requires all students to actively and safely participate in laboratory activities. Students who feel their disability may impact upon their participation are encouraged to discuss this with the subject coordinator and the Disability Liaison Unit.

This subject provides students with the opportunity to design and conduct, under supervision, independent research in biomedical science. Specific research projects will depend upon the availability of appropriate expertise and resources. Students will take responsibility for a research project, including the design of field and/or laboratory experiments; collection, appropriate statistical analysis, and interpretation of data; and oral and written presentations of the results. The report describing the research will more closely resemble a scientific paper than a traditional thesis. Students will assimilate and critically evaluate new knowledge within a scientific paradigm and communicate that knowledge to others. Students will also develop skills in managing a scientific research project, writing scientific reports, providing and responding to peer reviews, and making an oral presentation. Students will identify an appropriate supervisor and project as part of the application process for the Master of Biomedical Science (MC-BMEDSC).
Please note, this subject is part of the Master of Biomedical Science subject set (BIOM90012; BIOM90013; BIOM90014; and BIOM90015). Students must undertake 125 credit points from this subject set throughout the course of the Master of Biomedical Science.
The objectives of this subject are to provide students with skills in:
The assessment requirements below are applicable to the entire Research Project (125 points).
Satisfactory performance is required for the completion of ‘hurdle’ components. If necessary for written and oral components this may involve re-submission or re-presentation. For failed hurdle in Research Project attendance, subject re-enrolment would be required, and would be resolved through the CUPC process.
