Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Gene Vaccines

Gene vaccines are among the leading candidates against COVID-19, but how do these vaccines work? In this project we will answer this question by reviewing principles from molecular biology and biochemistry to fully understand how gene vaccines function. We will also talk about the immune system to learn how vaccines are designed and fabricated. We will conclude this project by covering the testing procedures that vaccines go through in order to be approved for medical use. By the end of this project, you will know the process of vaccine design, fabrication, and function so that you are prepared to conduct research at the university level.

Anatomy of the lung

Lungs are vital for human existence, but how do they really work? In this project we will answer this question by talking about the anatomy of the lung. We will learn about the components that make up the lung, including the cells and their properties, as well as how oxygen is processed at the lung. We will conclude this project by analyzing common lung diseases and the strategies that have been developed to treat to those diseases. At the end of this project, you will have a fundamental knowledge of how the lung functions and a better understanding of lung diseases, such as COVID-19, that you will be able to communicate more eloquently with medical doctors.
