Biomed grad about to start a research Master's in Cellular and Molecular Biosciences at Imperial

Methodology

There is not really a single teaching method as it will depend on the student and how they learn best. The main thing is to prepare what you will teach in detail so that you can best translate this to the student.

Background

I graduated with a first in Biomedical Sciences from UoM and am about to begin a research Master's in Cellular and Molecular Biosciences at Imperial and have previously tutored my brother and cousins, helping them with their GCSEs and A levels

EDUCATION
2018-2019 Imperial College London: MRes Molecular and Cellular Biosciences
• In October, I will begin a laboratory-based master’s course in which I will undertake two research projects in areas of biological science of my choice. The programme will also involve presentations and computational work.
2015-2018 The University of Manchester: BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences – First Class (1)
• Completed an independent primary source-based dissertation for my final year project. I explored the debate in medical and scientific literature for concussion being a change in brain structure vs a change in brain function. I investigated how each argument subsequently impacted their approach to concussion prevention, diagnosis and treatment and the effect of this on the rising concern of head injuries in football. I learnt how to identify useful and relevant sources from the literature, how to link evidence in novel explanations, time-management and source evaluation.
• Completed an independent secondary source-based literature review on how British sports medicine has changed over time (Year 3)
• Modules include: Biochemistry and Drugs (All Year 1); Cell Metabolism and Metabolic Control; Proteins; Clinical Drug Development (All Year 2); Biochemical Basis of Disease; Protein Assembly, Dynamics and Function (75% - amongst the highest in the year); Macromolecular Recognition in Biological Systems; Advanced Ion Transport (86% - amongst best in the year) and Protein Sorting (All Year 3)
• A second-year dissertation on how protein misfolding cause disease
• Second-year anatomy mini-project involving human cadaver dissection, morphometrics and working in small groups to design and perform our own experiment to study a research question. Our group examined the association between cubital fossa size and internal structure size.
• Completed a number of essays in which I learnt how to structure scientific information in an organised and coherent way in order to explain and argue
• Presenting findings of practical work in oral and written forms including producing presentations, graphs, figures, tables, statistical tests and lab reports in publication convention – displaying scientific information in an engaging and visual way
2008-2015 Ilford County High School (selective grammar), London

• Observation using microscopes and eye piece reticles
• Aseptic technique using bacterial and other microbial cultures
• Calculating, measuring, preparing and dispensing solutions
• PCR to isolate DNA and RNA and to genotype polymorphisms
• Transformation and conjugation in bacterial cultures including studying antibiotic resistance
• Scanning spectrophotometers using a sample blank and deconvoluting spectra from mixed samples
• Drug concentration responses
• Radioligand binding experiments
• Centrifuges and electrophoretic methods used for the separation of different samples
• Experimental design incorporating statistical analysis using computer systems and software such as GraphPad Prism – a scientific program used for the analysis, interpretation and presentation of scientific data
• Bioinformatics including some common bioinformatics databases (e.g. BLAST) and sequence analysis skills
• Clone analysis – how to grow clonal cultures of cells, performing mutation analysis, modifying experiments and interpreting data
• ELISA to measure hormone levels
• In vitro assays of drug-metabolising enzymes
• Immunoblotting and immunohistochemistry
• Understanding of NMR and EPR to characterise various processes (e.g. macromolecular interactions)
• Awareness of good health and safety and risk assessments
