Chanchal A

- Research Program Mentor

DPT candidate at University of Delaware


kinesiology / physical therapy / biology / entrepreneurship / psychology / neuroscience


I am currently studying at University of Delaware Physical Therapy Program to obtain my DPT. I received my Masters in Anatomy and Clinical Health Science last year. I am very interested in health care, kinesiology and entrepreneurship as I intend to establish my own Physical Therapy clinic in the future. During undergrad, I got the opportunity to research in a neuroscience lab that investigated the mechanism of Alzheimer's disease and the manipulation of targeted proteins. I was very fortunate to co-author a publication in Journal of Biological Chemistry as well. I love to travel and have been to multiple countries such as Estonia, Croatia, Spain and attended month long personal development seminars held in these countries. I have been sky diving twice and I loved every minute of it. My other hobbies include reading and hanging with my friends.

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.

Writing a specific review

In this project, you will write a scientific review-style paper on a topic of your choice. Topics could range anywhere within chemistry, from “the history of antibiotics” to “how do we know that electrons exist?“. This process will teach you how to find, access, and critically analyze existing scientific literature and how to assemble primary literature into a scientific review. You will gain skills in writing and editing, as well as an in-depth knowledge of your chosen research topic.

Creating Content

In this project, you can teach anything of your choice on a platform online such as YouTube or Udemy. This process will teach you to read scientific literature, draft a script and create an online presence.
