The Literature Study is based on a literature search to answer a research question or hypothesis in the area of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences under supervision of a staff member of the LACDR. The Literature Study should consist of a critical review of scientific literature describing actual information, obtained by sound experimental research.
The subject of the Literature Study should have a degree of novelty:
- No recent review with a similar subject should have been published, and
- The subject of the Literature Study must not coincide with the subjects of the student’s Research Projects.
The Literature Study must be performed in an uninterrupted period of 5 weeks and includes the writing of a thesis of approx. 20 tot 25 pages text (excluding figures; A4 , font 10 pt).
