Medical researchers including doctors, nurses, medical students and allied health professionals are required to undertake a period of research as part of their career pathway. This book covers the main areas, allowing anyone to set up and complete research projects and this information can easily be translated to clinical projects. Written by international authors to provide a flavor from many institutions, the books appeal is cross-sectional, both at hospital and primary care levels worldwide. Section A, the most important area in the book, covers the hardest step - setting up research (i.e. initial paperwork and funding projects). Section B is technical, covering modern laboratory techniques for laboratory-based research. Section C tackles data collation and analysis and the presentation of the results (oral and written). The book is directed at all doctors, medical students, and individuals in related specialities, either in research or considering research (e.g. MD, PhD, MSc and Intercalated BSc).
