As well as attending compulsory induction sessions in Weeks 1 and 2, you will need to arrange to meet with four Project leaders to disc projects underway in their teams.
Following this introduction to researchers in CBMS, you will be asked to nominate up to 3 whose work interests you for future work. Two of these will be assigned to you as your Lab A and Lab B experiences (as best accommodated by all student preferences).
During the two 5 week-sessions of laboratory work, you are expected to be present in the participating laboratory for ~14 hours per week. During this time, as well as participating in experiments under close supervision, you will write up a laboratory notebook, conduct background literature surveys and attend group meetings and seminars.
Technologies Used and Required
Consumable costs have been provided to each hosting laboratory towards your laboratory costs, and you will be provided with basic laboratory needs, including lab notebook. Specialist scientific equipment, computers and software will be made available to you under supervision, but you will require your own laptop with basic software installed to prepare your reports and presentation.
