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.

How do cancer mutations affect patient response to immunotherapies?

A student would look into the effects of how different mutations in a cancer type (ie breast cancer or liver cancer) affects patient response to immunotherapy. Students would learn to read and summarize scientific literature, skills that will contribute to their future work and studies. As a final product, students could produce a scientific research paper or summary figure, or both!
