As soon as you have a valid research idea and have done some literature search to understand the research gap, please contact BCRMU.
No. You don’t need to have a complete draft proposal before you schedule a meeting with us. As long as you have some clear ideas on your research objectives, have done some literature review and can confirm there are some research gaps. BCRMU will review the background information with you and suggest next steps.
The primary outcome you are interested, the null hypothesis you plan to test in the study, historical data/pilot data on the primary outcome or similar outcomes.
It normally takes about two weeks for BCRMU to review background information, historical studies and exchange ideas to decide the overall picture of a study proposal.
Please contact us through our website (https://bcrmu.sph.hku.hk/) or by email to email@example.com to arrange a meeting.
