In a small group they develop a strategy for a given topic (in Drug Discovery), by designing experiments and work packages which they evaluate according to different criteria like costs, effort, efficiency, Finally each group presents its research project.Assessment methodsFinal exam Presentation and discussion of the developed strategyTeaching methodsSeminarLanguageEnglishPublications The publications of Thomas Czerny written at FH Campus Wien can be found in our publication database, others in the personal web space.
