B. thetaiotaomicron in the Presence of Yogurt

The microbiome of humans contains an estimated 100 trillion microbial cells as well as an estimated quadrillion viruses. It is responsible for energy harvest, the breakdown of indigestible carbohydrates, the production of important biological molecules, and, most importantly, proper immune system development.

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.

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.

Building Low-Cost Prosthetics

Building low-cost prosthetics by SLAM scanning the residual limbs of amputees.

Hydrogen Sulfide Hastens New Leaf Growth

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a gas with a distinctive rotten egg smell that is widely found in the environment from volcanoes, sulfur springs, undersea vents, swamps, municipal sewers, and in crude petroleum and natural gas (1). H2S is toxic at high concentrations, but at very small amounts, it can help plants and our bodies in many ways, including the improvement of plant germination and drought resistance, protection against cardiovascular diseases, and stimulation of memory (2-9).

Ultrasound for Autonomous Heart Attacks

Every year, half of the 610,000 heart attack deaths in the United States are due to a lack of prompt medical attention. Currently, most technologies fail to fix the problem, as they simply take too long to be able to detect a heart attack in time.

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.

Maximizing Gibberellic Acid’s Efficiency to Increase Growth

Gibberellic acid (GA3) is a plant hormone that was first isolated from the fungus Gibberella in Japan in the 1930s. It was found to promote plant growth activity.  Gibberellic acid has since been isolated from a variety of different plant types, ranging from beans to tobacco.

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.
