Kliinisen tutkijan peruskurssi (5 op, Moodle, In Finnish only)

Koulutus järjestetään ajalla 26.2. - 27.5.2018.

Opintojakson tarkoituksena on ohjata aloittavia tutkijoita terveystieteellisen kliinisen tutkimuksen toteuttamiseen hyvän tutkimuskäytännön mukaisesti.
Kurssin keskeisiin sisältöihin kuuluvat mm.

  • kliinisen tutkimuksen eettisyys ja tietoon perustuva suostumus
  • lainsäädäntö, ohjeistukset ja viranomaisluvat sekä
  • hyvä kliininen tutkimustapa

Kohderyhmä on terveystieteellistä kliinistä tutkimusta tekevät jatkokoulutettavat ja post-docit. Osallistujilla tulee olla oma tutkimusaihe. Otamme kurssille ensisijaisesti Tampereen yliopiston Lääketieteen ja biotieteiden tiedekunnan sekä Tampereen yliopistollisen sairaalan erityisvastuualueen tutkijoita. Kurssille otetaan ilmoittautumisjärjestyksessä 35 kohderyhmään kuuluvaa koulutettavaa.

Opetusmenetelmänä on verkkokoulutus, kaikki välttämättä tarvittava oppimateriaali on Tampereen yliopiston Moodlessa. Kurssi sisältää luettavaa materiaalia ja verkko-oppimistehtäviä, joiden ohjauksesta vastaavat verkkokurssin kouluttajina toimivat tutorit. Lopputehtävän tarkistaa tieteenalan tutor.

Ilmoittautuminen alkaa 22.1.2018 ja päättyy 16.2.2018 klo 24.00. Ilmoittautumiset osoitteeseen

Hydrogel Journal Club

Time: Last Monday of each month at 15.00
25.09., 30.10., 27.11., (18.12.), 29.01., 26.02., 26.03., 23.04.

Place: Arvo-building at Kauppi campus. Seminar rooms will be announced via email.

Organized by: BioMediTech (Tampere University of Technology and University of Tampere)

Responsible persons: Christine Gering (doctoral student, TUT) & Vesa Hytönen (docent, UTA)

General description: This Journal Club is intended for researchers of BioMediTech institute with specific
interested related to HYDROGEL technology. The participants will get first-hand knowledge about the highly
multidisciplinary research done in our own institute. Different topics such as designing hydrogel biomaterials,
characterization methods, imaging requirements, biological response and applications in the medical and
biotechnological field will be discussed. The goal of the Journal Club is to enhance networking of BioMediTech
researchers and students with similar or parallel challenges and to spread the knowledge of all the possibilities
we have in our institute but we might not know about.

In practice, this Journal Club will function so that each session starts with a presentation on a particular hydrogel
related subject and then the participants will have time to discuss the topics or questions raised by the starting
presentation. The presentation can be given by one of the Journal Club participants or by an invited visiting
scientist. The topic of next session will be decided between the participants of previous session and it will be
announced through the course’s mailing list one week before the session.  

Structure of the course: Lectures (1 ECTS) and preparation of own presentation (1 ECTS).

Evaluation: Pass/Fail, compulsory attendance to 70% percentage of the sessions.

Course material: Material and presentations from the course will be available in Moodle.

Required earlier studies: Master’s students in the final part of their studies and PhD students can get ECTS
from this course. Post-doctoral researchers and lab personnel are free to join if they consider the day’s topic
interesting and relevant for them. Preference for participants with research related somehow to hydrogels, but
you can also join just to learn more. Highly interdisciplinary background of participants is beneficial for all.
