Methods of Reusing Food Waste

The development of an algorithm through the assessment of nutrients in a recycled food supplement for canines.

Method of Targeting Circulating Tumor Cells

Cancer metastasis accounts for 90% for all cancer-related deaths. Thus, treatment and prevention of secondary tumor formation is vital. A liposome coated with an adhesion molecule and death ligand is proposed in order to target the cancer cells in the bloodstream.

Caffeine in Weight Loss Supplements

Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that has powerful effects on the body. It blocks adenosine receptors, preventing adenosine from binding and calming us down. As a result, caffeine promotes wakefulness and improves performance function in low doses.

Biowaste to Biofuel

The inspiration for our project comes from the Millennium Project, which is a global foresight network on behalf of humanity for building a better future that informs the world of the emerging energy crisis.

Biomechanics of Velocity

The purpose of this experiment was to determine what formula would most accurately represent the velocity of an individual’s walking, speed walking, or jogging pace based on the length of their leg. Finding the correct formula could give amputees as easier transition to their new leg.

Translational Genomics of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) does not respond to receptor targeted treatments because they do not possess the ligands to bind to these receptors. Thus, more research needs to be explored in terms of the translational modifications that genes undergo during this disease.

Phytoplankton Plastid Proteomics & Biochemistry

The global epidemic of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has brought many researchers together in an attempt to find a solution. One such idea for sequestering CO2 out of the atmosphere is to employ phytoplankton, a dominant oceanic primary producer.

Constructing Silver Nanoparticles

Each year, over two million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed, which is greater than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. Therefore, prevention of skin cancer from the harmful effects of UV remains a priority area of research.

Platelet-Dependent Killing of C. albicans

There are around 150,000-400,000 platelets per microliter of blood in a healthy human being (Williams, n.d.), each which are around two microns in size (“Platelets on the Web,” n.d.). Platelets are blood cells which assist in the clotting of blood vessels, a process also known as hemostasis.

2018 ScienceBuzz Symposium

Click Here to go to the Conference Website

We are excited to announce the first annual ScienceBuzz Symposium, dedicated to middle and high school students. The conference and registration is completely free! Currently, the symposium date is June 9, 2018.

Pre-register for the symposium by visiting the conference website or clicking here. There are a limited number of seats and we expect to fill up quickly, so register ASAP. The event will include several internationally-renowned speakers, workshop sessions, company exhibitions, scholarships, and research presentations. 


The 2018 ScienceBuzz Symposium is the first, completely free conference exclusively for middle and high school students. Our theme for this year is “One Day of Powerful Talks.”

It will be hosted in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, but will include students from around the state and nearby regions. The event will have national guest keynote speakers (including a Nobel Prize Laureate, the head of a leading scientific institution, college admissions officers, university professors, leaders in gifted education, and top biopharma executives). It will also include workshop sessions, student poster presentations, five research scholarship awards, organizational and company exhibitions, and unique networking opportunities.
