Are you considering giving “lab practicals/training” within the research profile? E.g. how to do a western blot, simple cell staining for flow cytometry, immunostaining of cells, cell culture etc.?

The Research Profile aims to prepare you for a future career in research. This will include on one side, the connection to the research group. To what extent you will be able to do practical work and learn those mentioned techniques will need to be defined later on. On the other side, many more important skills on the researcher’s life will be taught in this profile, such as critical thinking, broad overview of your research field, funding schemes, and so much more. So it will not include "practicums"as you know them from the bachelor but more real preparation for the research world.
