PROTOCOL PREPARATION

A carefully planned protocol is a prerequisite for preparing any successful research project. A survey of the literature should help to put the objective of the project into sharp focus. A working hypothesis is then formulated and the experimental approach to test this hypothesis is designed. The methods necessary to gather the relevant data must, however, be executed with due consideration for the ethical aspects that govern experiments on both animals and human subjects.
