Experimental Design

Get Started Now

Work as a pharmaceutical detective to identify the link between a new drug and a recent epidemic. Use the scientific method to design an experiment and perform a fluorescent cell assay to test your hypothesis.

About the Experimental Design Virtual Simulation Lab

In this simulation, you will learn how to design a scientific experiment. As a pharmaceutical detective, you have the chance to perform experiments with human volunteers, animals, and living human cells. Make sure that you choose the correct experimental model to design a scientifically sound experiment for testing the effect of the suspicious drug.

The scientific method

Humans have always strived to explain natural phenomena. In the first mission of the experimental design simulation, you will learn how to use the scientific method to investigate phenomena, acquire new knowledge, or correct and integrate existing knowledge. Every tool you need to use is available in this virtual lab.

Design an experiment and test your hypothesis

In your next mission you have the freedom to design your own experiment from scratch while examining biopsies under a microscope. Define your scientific question and choose the right model to test your hypothesis. And don’t be afraid to make mistakes – in this virtual simulation you can repeat the experiment as many times as you want.

Experimental controls

You will notice that there are many experimental variables in your experiment. Learn how to adjust them and understand why it’s so important to use experimental controls to verify your results. These controls will let you conclude  whether a suspicious compound is the reason behind the reported epidemic. You’ll get to investigate the effect of different compounds and various concentrations of the same compound.

Will you be able to set up an experiment that can prove your suspicions?
