Conducting research


You can start conducting your research when the financial, scientific, and legal approvals are obtained. In this phase, the research guide offers additional resources or guidance to support your research project. You can use the left menu bar to find a page with specific information and available resources within VUmc, or you can use one of these icons to go directly to the pages about documentation, acquiring materials, equipment, research involving human subjects, sample analysis, data management, research involving data and the first steps towards publishing.
