This module provides an introduction to game theory, a framework for studying situations of strategic interdependence. You will be shown how to describe such situations formally, how to analyse them using concepts of dominance and equilibrium, and how the theory can be applied to questions arising in various social sciences. Prerequisite ECN114.
This is the second in a sequence of three modules intended to provide you with a thorough introduction to microeconomic theory. Topics covered include producer theory (technology, cost functions, profit maximisation, firm supply, monopoly); general equilibrium and exchange; welfare economics (theorems, externalities and public goods, surplus); and an introduction to asymmetric information. Prerequisite ECN111, ECN214.
The University of Illinois at Chicago Biopharmaceutical Sciences professor was cited for her two decades of research achievements in developing drug nanocarriers with phospholipid assemblies, liposomes, and micelles.
By conducting own research projects students are to develop professional skills in the pharmaceutical sciences which are mainly applicable in the pharmaceutical or pharmacy-related industry and pharmaceutical research institutions.
The study course covers two years and is divided into 12 modules with 19 study units taught in block seminars on Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday at the University of Duisburg-Essen.
Research students may be required to pay additional fees in addition to cover the cost of specialist resources, equipment and access to any specialist collections that may be required to support their research project. These will be informed by the research proposal submitted and will be calculated on an individual basis. Any additional fees will be outlined in your offer letter, prior to accepting your place at the University of Lincoln.
Most of the teaching will be via small-group tutorials where students will develop an appreciation and experience in various aspects of communication in biochemical science. The module will focus on types and structure of scientific literature, as well as types of journals and the process of peer review. Tutorials will cover approaches to effective short essay writing and delivering scientific talks. Attendance at research seminars is required and a library workshop to developing literature search skills. Tutorials will require a high level of student participation.
The aim of this module is to provide the students with an understanding of how the gene paradigm has changed with time. By examining a number of seminal experiments in detail, and reviewing the development of genetics and reverse genetics in different model organisms, the first half of the module explains how classical approaches to genetics are gradually giving way to a genomics-based approach to this subject. The second half of the module explores the molecular mechanisms involved in ensuring that DNA, the repository of inherited information, achieves the difficult balance of change (mutation and recombination) and stability (repair) necessary for evolution to occur. The various techniques involved in modern genetic analysis are covered as the module progresses. These include plasmids, restriction enzymes, DNA sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Southern and Northern blots, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), cDNA and genomic libraries, and targeted gene knockout technologies.
This module expands upon topics covered in SEF003 and provides a further introduction to the fundamentals of chemistry; including topics such as thermochemistry, reaction kinetics and equilibria, molecular structure, aspects of organic chemistry, and spectroscopic methods. Prerequisite: SEF003 Introductory Chemistry
"The module aims to introduce the idea that we are social rather than natural beings and this impacts upon how we produce, consume, labour, etc. It also means that there are different versions of whether we are collective, individualistic rational, or for how we should treat nature and that all of this shapes how a market society is organised and perceived and the role that the market can and should play within this framework. This directly links to how organisations, the state, management, etc. are encountered i.e. there are ways of viewing the market and its relationship to development, business, organisation, social cohesion, etc. which are important to any degree that purports to develop management education. It is also proposed that students would receive a reading pack and would be expected to make use of the library and develop their reading, interpretative and analytic skills."
This module will bring together pharmacology knowledge and apply it in the context of commercialisation. Students will examine and compare small and start up enterprises, including University spin outs alongside larger pharmaceutical companies. This module will also introduce aspects of finance, intellectual property rights, business law and marketing for business development.
Prerequisites: Students with an average of 60% or above (combination of first year and second year results) are eligible to register for this module. Overall the module is expected to involve students for approximately 18h/week, for 12 weeks, spent on laboratory and library work, plus additional time spent on data analysis and on writing the dissertation.
The role of chemical kinetics and thermodynamics in materials science. The module will begin wilth derivation and description of some fundamental kinematics and thermodynamic phenomena such as Gibbs free energy, rate equations, equilibria etc. The effect of variables such as temperature and pressure will be examined. The module will go and to demonstrate with examples how these can be applied to solve problems for gas, solution, and solid phase scenarios with a particular emphasis on polymer synthesis.
