Short course annotation in Lithuanian

Praktikos metu studentų pagrindinės užduotys bus su vadovu aptarti mokslinio tyrimo projekto vykdymo sąlygas ir aplinkybes, esamą padėtį projekte, numatyti užduotį praktikos laikotarpiui. Studentas turėtų įgusti vykdyti laboratorinius eksperimentus ir rutinines biochemines analizes, dalyvauti  visuose mokslinių tyrimų etapuose, įskaitant planavimo, paruošimo, kalibravimo,  paraiškos teikimo, vertinimo, duomenų analizės ir projekto eigos priežiūros. Studentas turėtų išmokti suplanuoti ir atlikti eksperimentus prižiūrint vadovui tam tikro projekto rėmuose, gauti naujus rezultatus, rinkti ir interpretuoti duomenis, remiantis duomenų analize parengti pagrįstas mokslines išvadas , pateikti projekto rezultatus kolegoms ir kitiems besidomintiems jo darbu.

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with supervised research experience in a biochemistry or biotechnology-related organization. The internship experience will take place at an approved site. The main tasks of the students during the internship will be: to review a research project background and status with mentor; to become proficient in laboratory experiments or biochemical assays; to participate in all phases of research including planning, preparation, calibration, application, evaluation, data analysis, maintenance; to design and conduct experiments with mentorship guidance within a defined project; to make novel observations; to collect and interpret data; to draw sound scientific conclusions based on data analysis; to present project reviews before colleagues and peers.

Prerequisites for entering the course

Biochemistry 2, Microbiology and basic immunology, Chemical analysis 2.

Course aim

To develop knowledge, experience and skills related to a variety of mainstream biochemical techniques in different areas; to enhance research experiences and to encourage students to participate in research.

Content

Students will participate in research projects. It will be a chance to make an excellent impression on a future employer, meet people at research institutes and industry and make connections with those who can help get ahead. The intern will have practical experience in handling chemicals, operating laboratory equipment, generating and manipulating data, as well as computer database and word-processing skills. The intern program will provide an opportunity for students to work closely with a senior scientist in order to improve technical skills. Interns are encouraged to be creative and take initiative, where appropriate, and will be granted significant latitude for discretionary decisions and independence of action within guidelines established by their supervisor. Interns are expected to always operate in a safe and efficient manner. The research will increase their creativity and critical thinking, will develop communication skills (written and oral), and enhances the ability to learn independently and work collaboratively with others in teams.

Distribution of workload for students (contact and independent work hours)

Practical work (laboratory practice) – 80 h, individual work – 80 h

Structure of cumulative score and value of its constituent parts

Final assessment sums the assessments of the written report (60%) and oral presentation of the report (40%)

Course programme designed by
