Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
Completion of the M1 research project (5 months) will offer the students the opportunity to analyse, evaluate and summarize scientific literature in a specialized field, to get theoretical and practical knowledge of relevant experimental techniques, to conduct independent scientific research, to write a research report and to present research results for disciplinary audience.

Compétences :
  • Define how modern Science works in a global world (from conceptual to political issues)
  • Find and get appropriate complementary training/education at the international level
  • Contribute to Alumni/business networking

  • Know the basis of modern statistics and modelling applied to biology
  • Know the fundamental rules of health and security at work in the lab
  • Design experimental protocols
  • Process and analyse data using appropriate tools including specialised software
  • Apply the rules of health and security at work in the lab
  • Work independently on specific research tasks
  • Work in a transversal, multidisciplinary way and participate in team effort in an international environment
  • Communicate effectively in English and native language on the procedures followed and the results yielded by experiments with the matching interpretation to diverse audiences using a range of media (from research papers to public communications)
  • Examine their own practice at all levels in a critical manner and modify accordingly, including find appropriate information and counselling to do so.
  • List ethical issues and regulations linked to animal and human experimentation
  • Know the basic principles of ICT and standard office software
  • Use proficiently basic ICT and standard office software resources
  • Apply the basic philosophy of scientific and technical thinking and consider ethical issues related to scientific research
  • Make an effective literature search

  • Have in-depth knowledge of at least one specialized Neurosciences field
  • Formulate appropriate questions and propose effective investigations to complex Neurosciences issues: 5.1. Identify and critically asses theoretical and practical approaches to develop appropriate strategies of investigation 5.2 Critically review specialized bibliography 5.3 Monitor and evaluate results
  • Develop and apply appropriate research methodologies (including proteomics, genomics, brain imaging, modelling…) and modern research tools (including software) for investigating brain research issues.
  • Study and work out a concrete, practical Neurosciences problem independently.
  • Examine their own practice in a critical manner and modify accordingly, including reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of brain research
