    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working on my EPQ this year. I've been browsing through old threads which are about medicine related EPQ'S. My main purpose was to find an idea to use in my EPQ.

    I want to become a medical oncologist, so one of the questions I saw was 'How far can immunological research advance cancer treatments'.

    I have a few questions.

    1. Do you think this is a good question? Is it too broad, or do I need to be more specific in some areas? What would be the ideal things to talk about?

    2.I am currently struggling to find articles/resources online to use. Where would be a good website/forum to go to, or books to read which may help me with the question of my EPQ.

    3. Do you possibly have any other suggestions? Anything related to medicine/becoming a medical oncologist.

    Thank you for reading and I am looking forward to your replies.

    Maybe reword the question slightly? You could look at how monoclonal antibodies (like infliximab) have changed cancer treatment, and whether they are beneficial compared to older chemotherapy agents? You might be able to look further then into the future if there are other treatments involving the immune system being developed. If you're struggling to find articles, your question may be too specific or there may not be much progress in the area.

    The NCBI is the best place to find medical journal results, you can also use Google Scholar to search.
    Merck Manuals are fantastic if you want to know more about specific diseases.
    Wikipedia is also great for a lot of things (although try to cross reference if there are no references in the article).
