Lecturer(s) :

Profs divers *

Language:

English

Withdrawal

It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.

Summary

The student will engage in a laboratory-based project in the field of molecular medicine, neuroscience or bioengineering. Student projects will emphasize acquisition of practical skills in experimentation and data analysis.

Content

A typical project will involve "hands-on" wetlab experimentation and data analysis, although
theoretical and computationally-oriented projects are also possible. The projects are available on the web sites of SV laboratories or discussed directly with a potential head of lab.

The students are confronted with the realization of a laboratory-based project integrating
specific aspects of molecular medicine or neuroscience.
This project will allow them to apply, to concrete problems, skills of domain and transversal skills acquired during their studies

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Bachelor in Life Sciences and Technology

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Expected student activities

Students will focus on hands-on experimentation, which may be wetlab-based or computer-based, depending on the project. Students will read and discuss assigned papers from the original
scientific literature. As part of the evaluation process, students may be required to submit a written report or to give an oral presentation that summarizes and interprets their results.

16h/semaine de présence en laboratoire pendant 14 semaines ou 5 semaines à 100% (42h/semaine).

Peut être pris durant les vacances d'été ou au semestre d'automne

Assessment methods

Continuous control

The mode of evaluation must be clearly defined and agreed between the student and the project mentor in advance. Typically the mode of evaluation will include a written report and /or an oral
presentation prepared and delivered by the student.
