Clinical Research Development & Practice (CEPI5210)


In this unit the student will develop his/her own research proposal, to a standard suitable for a peer-reviewed granting body. Each section of a grant proposal (Aims, Background, Significance, Methods, Analysis) will be discussed in class, with the student presenting and refining the corresponding section of his/her own proposal in a workshop setting. This will then be complemented by presentations from experienced researchers on the practical aspects of clinical epidemiological research, including: funding application, ethical approval, implementation of study designs and publication strategies.
