Pathology 438 Directed Studies

In Year 4 of the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science Program, you’ll have the opportunity to enroll in an optional directed studies course. Under the guidance of a faculty supervisor, students carry out and participate in all aspects of the research project — from the initial research design through to experimentation and data analysis.

Past students have pursued diverse areas of research, including:

  • Genome-wide scan for calcific aortic valve stenosis (BC Cancer Research Agency)
  • Comparison of lab tests in the evaluation of Pregnancy Associated Proteinuria (GEM Program, Children’s and Women’s
    Health Centre of British Columbia))
  • Molecular Characterization of Cryptosporidium (BC Centre for Disease Control)
  • Pathogen Inactivation in Stored Platelets (Canadian Blood Services))
