Anatomy and Physiology Report

I was thinking of doing skin diseases caused by the sun or skin cancer due to the sun. I am in Vegas, so I was interested in the long run health of sun exposure on the skin. What should I focus on? Is this a good topic for a report? How should I title this report? We can write on any topic that is related to anatomy and physiology.

The course objectives include:

Research paper -
1. Outline
2. Rough Draft
3. 2nd Draft
4. Final Draft

It also includes grading rubics. What is grading rubics???? Also, we are not going to do a oral presentation, just a report. Hope that information will help you help me.

Solution Preview

I think this would be a very good topic to choose. A paper on the effects of sun exposure on skin would involve both anatomy and physiology and gives you several options to focus on. And, I notice from the course objectives that your professor wants an outline and two rough drafts -- this is good because you'll get lots of feedback from him on what he likes and doesn't like.

For now, let's focus on skin cancer caused by sun exposure. If the professor wants you to expand the topic or if you can't find enough information to make the paper as long as it need to be, you can change the topic to include other skin diseases that involve sun exposure and/or the other (non-disease) affects of sunlight on the skin.
