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.

Protein Delivery Methods

There are many ways scientists have tried to deliver proteins, including cell-penetrating peptides, lipid nanoparticles, and electroporation. But what methods actually work? In this project, you will scour the literature to learn about several delivery methods and begin to shape a solution for the protein delivery problem. Along the way, learn how to read scientific papers, evaluate technology, and identify new and promising solutions.
