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.

Regenerative Medicine Treatment Discovery

Have you ever wanted to create your own drug? Ever wanted to cure a disease? Stem cells have the application to regenerate and proliferate all cell types. Depending on the tissue environment/cell type, stem cells have the capacity to replenish the cells in order to target and treat several diseases. Stem cells have strong applications for treatment but contain several ethical concern, which can be circumvented with new technologies. The use of these stem cells therefore can be applied to all disease types. In this project, we can create a disease target and formulating a process to research the drug and finding its application in the area of research.

Healthcare Population Analytics

Millions of claims data from healthcare insurers are generated each day, which incorporate all areas of the treatment paradigm. Using information on the diagnoses, treatments, age populations and several other factors, we can create an analysis for deciphering when populations are at risk and finding solutions to mitigate these problems for several disease areas.

Biotechnology Industry Evolution

How have we gotten from our first production of insulin to genetic engineering in order to provide personalized medicine? The field is extremely dynamic and evolving each day with the constant changes of the landscape. In this project, we will assess the company's in this field, how they propel the sector and where there are lags and barriers in order to find viable solutions to promote innovation and development.
