The following three students qualified for the Intel Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles based on their performance in the Delaware Valley Science Fair. This is the most students High Tech has sent at the same time to the Intel Science and Engineering Fair. Congratulations to all three girls.
Ruchi Asthana (DVSF teams medalist)
Problem: Pulmonary Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare progressive, often fatal lung disease predominantly affecting women in their childbearing years. If a patient is diagnosed with LAM, only a lung transplant can prolong her life- at most by eight to ten years.
Goals: This study was conducted to determine how LAM cells evade the innate immune system. Understanding these mechanisms then helped in identifying new pharmacological targets for treatment.
Tiffany Perumpail (DVSF bronze medalist - 12th grade fair)
Problem: There is no existing method to translate oncogene-targeted therapies for heterogenous cancers to human models.
Goals: To design and test microRNA-targeted therapies in order to regress liver cancer in mammalian models with sustained oncogene overexpression.
Queenie Luo (DVSF silver medalist - 11th grade fair)
Problem: There is a lack of practical and convenient technological devices that can generate the battery power needed to charge small electronic devices on the go.Goals: To design and build an apparatus that can be attached to the bottom of footwear, which converts the energy the user spends daily on walking to battery power for electronic devices.
