PATH10010 Translational Research
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module is specifically for the stage 1 students of the Biomedical Health and Life Sciences BSc degree programme. Translational research means different things to different people, but is important to everyone if we want scientific discoveries to impact on patients health. Where the module will introduce students to the concept of translational research, it will do so, not as lectures but as small group workshops, tutorials, Journal Clubs and seminars through both a blended approach of on-line and face to face sessions allowing the students to explore and discuss what is meant by translational research and formulate their own definition. It will also review the composition, critical mass and structures of current translational research institutions around the world to determine what is needed to impact on patient health. This module will give an insight into the vision of the Biomedical Health and Life Science programme motivating students to investigate innovative modules and research projects to become unique translational scientists which will impact on patient health. The module will be assessed by continuous assessment through oral and journal club presentations and weekly discussion/blog entries.
