2L06 project proposal peer-editing session this Wednesday Nov 30th

Term 1 of BIOCHEM 2L06 is at its end and it's time to get those project proposals done (or at least started probably someday sometime soon). Regardless of how far along in the process you are, Brotien mentors will be around to give you tips and tricks on how to impress the ever-feared Marking Mentor® who has been assigned to have a look at your proposal. We can help you with anything: introduction, methods, or even making an aesthetically pleasing flowchart.

(Disclaimer: While Broteins are here to help, always be sure to consult with said Marking Mentor® if possible when you have specific questions about their expectations.)

Keep up with the event on Facebook.
