This capstone subject enables students to conduct "real-world" research in the biomedical sciences. Under the supervision of an active research academic, students will plan, execute and report on a research project chosen from a variety of topics. This research is spread across two semesters (Research Project A and Research Project B).

Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
