Almost all bioscience researchers will perform the analysis of protein expression at some point during their career. This course is designed and delivered by leading research scientists from the pharmaceutical industry to give early career scientists and science students the opportunity to learn ELISA and Western Blotting using the most up-to-date methods on industrial grade equipment.
This course is designed for undergraduates and graduates who wish to gain 'real' experience in setting up their own protocols.
This course allows students to perform their own analytical tests using the well established techniques of ELISA and Western Blotting to answer real world questions. Students will learn how to design and perform their experiment and then evaluate the results.
To get the most from this course students without previous laboratory experience should attend the laboratory skills course first. It is assumed that students attending the Skills in Analytical Science course understand Risk Assessments and COSHH. Students should be able to calculate and create their own molar stock solutions, perform a pH test and serial dilutions in a 96 well plate and understand the basic theory behind Western Blotting and ELISA.
Courses are carried out with high levels of staffing to encourage questions, interaction and discussion. Students are advised to take the opportunity to improve their networks through speaking with other students and tutors present on the day of the course. Lunch and snacks are provided throughout the day with opportunities to network with other students and scientists running the course.
SRG (Science Recruitment Group) are working with BioGrad to help our students find work. Please speak with the scientist deilvering your course and they will be able to direct you to our careers consultants at SRG.
BioGrad scientists will also provide references based upon your performance during the course and a certificate of attendance at the end. Students are encouraged to take photographs of themselves working in the laboratory to use as LinkedIn profile pictures and we will endorse new skills on LinkedIn after the course.
