Research Project (MRTY5113)


Molecular Imaging is a technology driven field which is continually evolving as new technologies emerge giving rise to new applications. In this unit, you will undertake a research project that requires you to use the knowledge and skills gained throughout the course to solve a real problem aligned with your disciplinary area and interests. You will choose from a list of topics and undertake the design and preparatory phase of the project with support from your supervisor. The data collection phase will take place in the research facilities of the partner Universities.
On completion of this unit, students will have gained research skills and acquired some practical experience of formulating a problem, designing a study using the most appropriate methodology, acquiring and analysing data and drawing conclusions. Thus, the research project together with the coursework you have completed throughout this program will provide an ideal preparation for those who choose to go on to PhD research.
