Human Health Sciences

A health sciences project examines some biomedical and/or clinical aspect of human life or lifestyle and its translation into improved health for humans, or more effective health services and products. Projects related to the health of specific populations, societal, cultural and lifestyle dimensions of health, and environmental influences on health are also included in this division. Health sciences projects include those related to human aging, genetics, cancer research, musculoskeletal health, arthritis, circulatory and respiratory health, nutrition, neurosciences, mental health, psychology, metabolism, human development, infection and immunology. In addition, projects involving animal research that have a direct application to human health are included in this division. Projects involving research on humans demand careful planning with respect to Youth Science Canada regulations.
