Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
The project will be held in the Microbiological diagnostic & infection control unit (MDICU) inside the Microbiology and Immunology department in Mansoura Faculty of Medicine. Students will be able to study the surveillance of patients, personnel and environment aiming to identify sources of Nosocomial Infection (NI) inside MUHs (Mansoura University Hospitals) through culture sampling, identification and follow up.
What is the aim of the project?
Limitation of nosocomial infection in Mansoura University Hospitals by identification of risk factors and application of high standard measures to prevent nosocomial infection.
What techniques and methods are used?
Taking samples from health personnel, patients and environment for laboratory studies. Then analysis of the data to arrange the high risk factors to be highlighted for the infection control unit at the hospitals to start elimination of risk factors.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The students will collect data about the risk factors for nosocomial infection after that they will do analysis of these data. Also, the student will do laboratory work at the department like sampling and ELISA under supervision of the doctor. Also, clinical observation at the department for patients with infections that most likely cause nosocomial infection. In this project the student will be oriented with basic infection control measures in hospitals.
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
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
clinical or preclinical student with basic knowledge of microbiology.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
