Excellent Education Tool

Posted by funtohave on 04 Aug 2013 at 01:26 GMT

This article can serve as an excellent educational tool for both the basic and medical scientist in-training.
It outlines a logic that is imperative to have in order to appropriately work within the evidence-based context,
while still having some excitement and may I say - fun - while embarking on such a project.

This article provides some straight-forward tools in form of the outline and scope definition.
