The IgNITE Medical Case Competition is an annual research case competition organized by students across North America. Our mission is to provide high school and university students the opportunity to gain valuable research experience while networking with industry professionals. Each year, students in teams of 1-4 are paired with an experienced mentor to develop and present a novel research proposal within a specified theme of the competition. Students are taught the fundamental scientific principles underlying three lab techniques that they can then use during the competition in their proposal or their future research career. This year's theme was Immunity, and competitors learned about Tissue Culturing, ELISA, and Flow Cytometry. Furthermore, this year, the IgNITE community grew internationally with 670 high school and university students competing. This booklet presents the Top 40 teams' abstracts, and we invite you to visit our website (www.ignitecompetition.org) to watch the associated elevator pitch videos. We hope you enjoy reading through some of this year's top proposals and hope you will join our growing community.
