What are a few topics that's good for research?
I'm not totally sure what you're asking, but if youre asking for appropriate topics to do research in as a premed, my first advice is to choose anything that personally interests you. If it is medically related, even more appropriate, but anything will do.What are a few topics that's good for research?
C elegans = worms --> RNAi --> Nobel prizeDo what you find interesting.
I promise you, no medical school is going to say, "Well, Joe did research on tumor cells, and Susie did research on worms. Clearly, Susie is worthless and not a viable candidate for our medical school."
One of my friends in college did research on deep-sea tube worms. Does it have anything to do with medicine, even tangentially? Nope. Did it matter? Vandy didn't seem to think so.
C. elegans are a wee bit different than these giant tube worm thingies my friend worked on, looking at CO2 or something.C elegans = worms --> RNAi --> Nobel prize
Don't diss the worms.
I'm just giving you a hard time. I remember reading about some guy who did tomato plant research but he was so enthusiastic about it the adcoms were impressed.C. elegans are a wee bit different than these giant tube worm thingies my friend worked on, looking at CO2 or something.
My point was more about doing something you like, not something you think med schools will like. And certainly not worrying about getting a Nobel prize.
