What techniques and methods are used?
-
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 includes “lab work”
- the student will take active part in the practical aspect of the project
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The student is expected to activately participate under the supervision of the researcher, acquiring the practical and theoretical experiences in the field of human anticancer immunity and development of modern therapeutics
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Weekly internal seminars
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 presentation
- The student’s name will be mentioned in a future publication
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
The students considering participating in the project, are supposed to look through the following articles:
