The training course in bench research will develop fundamental skills that are necessary to conduct high quality scientific experiments from scratch to completion. This course design is individualized for each candidate, and aims to teach each person the techniques to develop a hypothesis/ rationale, goal, specific aims and significance of a scientific bench project, organize their research work, conduct research by application of the relevant experimental techniques. The candidate will be trained to acquire skills necessary for data analysis. The candidate will also be able to acquire skills and ability to present and write the research data in a methodical, scientifically and statistically sound manner.
Each candidate, irrespective of their prior background, begins with a clean slate and will be closely mentored by our trainers. Throughout the course, candidates will resolve any prior misconceptions of conducting bench research which may have been a barrier to them in the past, as they now get comfortable to conduct hands-on research, with the guidance of the trainer.
With the step by step training that is provided, candidates will gain confidence to conduct the bench research and write the scientific paper in a clear and concise manner. This empowers the candidate to conduct quality bench research and produce excellent writing which can be published in peer-reviewed, high quality journals to highlight the research conducted.
