Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project without Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Diagnosis of breast cancer quickly and accurately is vital, as the earlier breast cancer is diagnosed and treated, the greater the chances of survival. Our approach is done by understanding the earliest changes in the development of breast cancer, we will make sure women are diagnosed early. We ensure the best methods are implemented to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages. We have to ensure that the breast screening program evolves to incorporate new evidence on the best ways to group people by risk.
What is the aim of the project?
Our aim is that an increasing amount of people will be diagnosed early and our improved understanding of different breast cancers will better their chances of successful treatment.
What techniques and methods are used?
Step by step on how to prepare a slide concerning diagnosis of breast cancer. Also, statistical data entry. Clinical Project without Laboratory work.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- If the project is clinical
- the student will be allowed to work with patients
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The students will work on preparation of the slides for to be diagnosed pathologically, then they will collect data about the prevalence of the disease after that they will do analysis of these data and data entry and finally interpretation into research paper. Also, the student will do clinical observation at the department but under supervision by the doctor and may do some clinical work after doctor’s permission.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Introduction seminar about the work process, what we already did and what we will do.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a scientific report
- The student will prepare a poster
- The student will prepare a presentation
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Clinical student with basic knowledge of pathology.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
