The SSGSA STEM Sustainability Case Competition is an annual research case competition hosted by undergraduate students from the STEM Students Guelph Support Association (SSGSA). The mission of this competition is to provide University of Guelph undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop their own research proposal while gaining valuable experience in innovative thinking and critical research analysis. Each year students, in teams of up to three are paired with an experienced mentor to develop and present a novel research proposal aligning with the competition’s theme. During the competition, students are taught fundamental principles outlining three lab techniques which they could write about in their proposal. The theme of the competition this year was Genetic Engineering, and competitors learned about CRISPR-Cas9, CAR T-cell therapy, and PCR. In the 2022-2023 SSGSA STEM Sustainability Case Competition over 100 participants submitted abstracts for judgment, and we present the Top 20 winning submissions to be read by you in our competition abstract booklet. We hope you enjoy reading this year’s best abstract submissions and encourage you to participate in the growing SSGSA community as we strive to encourage interest in novel scientific research fields surrounding STEM.
