You could do stuff like immunity - 'how long did it take the body to produce sufficient amount of antibodies to overcome a disease upon first exposure and second exposure?' and see how it varies between people etc, you could investigate the strength of different types of immunity, like natural and artificial passive/active and decide which form is the best, you could see how the human race has evolved to become immune to loads of different diseases. An interesting one would be "Are you going overboard with 'germ-free'?" cos we need germs/pathogens to build up immunity, and since everything's disinfected etc children don't build up immunity therefore are more prone to disease.

Is there anything specific in mind?

No, I'm going to uni or doing HNC Applied/Biomedical/Biological Sciences I did higher human biology and we covered this stuff in detail.

Genetic diseases could be quite interesting too, like Huntingtons, Lupus, Down's, Turner's, PKU, Cystic Fibrosis, Albinism, Haemophilia, Muscular dystrophy, Klinefelter's. You could say how they come about (mutations) and how they are passed via genetic maps (sex-linked etc), and how karaotypes, CVS, Aminocentesis, Pre/Post-natal screening can be used to detect them.

You could do research into rejection of transplanted tissues, autoimmunity and allergies.

You could research blood groups, look up the rheus system and pregnancy, it's quite interesting.

You could talk about viral mutations, how they're spread, all the viruses that have been 'eradicated' and HIV/AIDs.

You could also argue about the structure of viruses and how they seem to be non-living and living.

Sorry if any of this is incorrect, my biology is a bit rusty :P

Good posts.
