Week Six: What is going on?

Week 2- Planning Your Scientific Journey

A Process to Develop a Research Project

Developing a process – We emphasize in this lesson how developing a scientific question doesn’t happen without concerted effort. A person needs to dedicate space and time to work on it. This lesson takes you through an example process of how one advisor has her trainees develop a scientific question and experimental approach. You will define your own process for developing a research project, and identify the resources you need to explore a research topic.
