Research Project Options:

Route A

In the third semester students on Route A of the MSc in Clinical Neurology select a sixty credit clinical research project which can be:

  • Without patient contact, ranging from systematic reviews to analysis of existing data sets.
  • With patient contact, ranging from face to face interviews to participating in new interventions

A limited number of laboratory-based projects may be available, based at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) ; a brand new, state-of-the-art translational neuroscience facility opened by Her Majesty the Queen in November 2010.

The research project is assessed from the written dissertation and research presentation.

Students will complete the externally recognised and accredited 'Good Clinical Practice' course as part of the preparation for their research project.
