BAD Research Techniques Course

BAD Research Techniques Course

The BAD have run a number of highly successful Research Techniques taster courses.

This is a two day intensive course hosted by a world class centre for Dermatology Research.  There are 12 places and the course is fully funded by the BAD (delegates are only asked to cover their travel costs to and from the centre).

The programme comprises short lectures followed by supervised practical sessions in:

  • DNA extractions
  • Flow Cytometry
  • Microscopy
  • Western blotting
  • Bioinformatics

There is a course dinner after the first day and plenty of opportunity to discuss research opportunities with the staff and course leaders.

Feedback from previous delegates

"An insight into common / important laboratory techniques used in Dermatology research"

"We had exposure to a wide range of research techniques"

"The practical sessions were incredibly useful"

"It has given me an good insight into lab research, having had no previous exposure to it. I am keen on clinical research but not sure yet about lab research unless it's on an area that I am really interested in"

"I already planned to do a research degree, it has demystified a lot of different scientific techniques that I didn't understand"

"confirmed my wish to do research"

The format has been developed by Professor Edel O'Toole and Professor David Kelsell at the Blizard Institute., however it has been held across a number of centres in the UK.
