This course aims at providing students a comprehensive training of the basic laboratory techniques, allowing them to independently handle selected basic yet essential molecular, cellular and microscopy techniques with competence and confidence. Students will also be introduced how the laboratory animals are being housed in our School's modern animal holding facility. Students will be given hands-on opportunities to study and practice repeatedly the skills being taught in specially arranged practicing sessions to increase their confidence, and prepared to become a reasonable lab operator for laboratory sessions in other biomedical sciences courses, and before they join their first research attachment. Skill-specific assessment will be used to assess students' holistic abilities including attitude, competency and accuracy in handling the various skills and techniques.
