ANAT 499 - Research Project in Anatomy & Cell Biology

 Year 4
On-Campus Course

Dr. Nikki Philbrook

ANAT 499 is a research project course with individually supervised projects in selected research areas in Anatomy and Cell Biology program under the direction of a faculty member in DBMS. It is expected that the student will work fairly independently on the research project under the guidance of the supervisor and another senior laboratory member (when available) who will provide guidance throughout the project. The initiative and participation of the student in developing the project is a critical component of this course. Ability to evaluate key scientific papers, experimental methodology and data analysis is important. 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.
