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 review of vaccine strategies

We all get vaccinated before enrolling in school or traveling or starting jobs in the healthcare field. These vaccinations are for Measles virus, Tetanus bacteria, Influenza virus, Hepatitis B virus, etc. More recent vaccines against Ebola virus and SARS-Cov-2 use different delivery strategies to prepare the immune system. The student can maybe write a review of either the different types of vaccines from a historical perspective, or the vaccine strategies used in the vaccines listed on their school's (or my school's) immunization form.
