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.

Literature Review of Cancer Immunology

Mentee develops a well-developed understanding of cancer immunology and scientific writing by researching the latest scientific articles and compiling a written review of their findings. There are several ways to break this down. Traditionally, the mentee could write a straight forward outline of both the cancer cells' functions and ways to subvert the immune system as well as the immune cells' functions and ways to kill the cancer cells. Alternatively, this could be spun into a creative narrative exploring the two sides like battling entities (maybe making a graphic of some sort), which may make this more fun and engaging while still developing a strong knowledge base and sparking passion.
