Does anyone know whether there is a scientific practical I could do and write a 3000 word report on regarding factors that affect cell growth?

ARE there any factors that affect cell growth?

Or would a topic more closely related to my dream uni course (paramedic practice) be a better choice? Possibly a dissertation on medical ethics or the development of paramedical technology?

There are indeed many factors that affect cell growth, look up proto-oncogenes. These are genes that when mutated lead to increased cellular growth and proliferation. A good example would be c-myc/ras/src.
Not sure on a practical but the rous sarcoma virus injects v-src causing increased cellular growth. It's quite complex but I'm willing to help if you want.
I don't have any examples of practicals you could do as agents that cause increased cellular growth tend to be tumorigenic
