This is a research project course dealing with individually supervised study in selected research areas in Anatomy and Cell Biology under the direction of a faculty member of this Department. It is expected that the student will work fairly independently on the research project under the guidance of the supervisor and likely another laboratory member who will provide instruction and feedback throughout the project. The initiative and participation of the student in developing the project will be extremely important. Ability to evaluate key scientific papers, experimental methodology and data analysis is important. Depending on the nature of the research project, students are expected to spend at least 1.5 days (12 hours) per week in the laboratory. The student and supervisor should establish the direction of the research project early in the course. In laboratories where several individuals are working on parts of a large project, the student's role should be clearly delineated at the outset.
