How Machine Learning and Big Data Will Change the Future of Medicine

Artificial intelligence is fundamentally changing many industries and in the coming decades will transform our society as a whole. However, the most extraordinary developments for all of us could come from machine learning structures used in the medical field. By combining the vast amounts of medical patient data with powerful machine learning data-analytics algorithms, the healthcare sector can save thousands of lives and transition from a static to a dynamic and personalized approach for patient […]

On the Development of Q. alba as an Oral Care Product: A Comparison with T. chebula by TLC

Tejas Thvar Mountain View High School, Mountain View, CA Abstract Natural remedies for oral care have been used since ancient times.  The fruit of Terminalia Chebula (T. chebula), a tropical deciduous tree, has been widely used in oral care in tropical countries. In more recent studies the antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of T. chebula have been adequately demonstrated. T. chebula, however, grows only in specific locations in South Asia and not easily available in other […]

Report: Stem Cell Research - Science and Policy

Stem Cell Research: Science and Policy Peter A. Kessler 9th Grade, the Lovett School, Atlanta, GA   Abstract Stem cell research represents one of the most polarized biomedical controversies of our time. There are many types of stem cells, but the one with the most potential is the embryonic stem (ES) cell. Such cells are derived from human embryos, and are undifferentiated, unlike other specialized cells in the human body. ES are pluripotent, as they […]

Computational Analysis of Drug Therapy Options for Glioblastoma

Kriti Agrawal Centerville High School Abstract Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary brain tumor in the US and European countries and also the deadliest.  Glioblastoma cells exhibit a different gene expression profile from normal cells. There are 601 known mutations in GBM tumors. The aim of this study was to identify the most important proteins in the glioblastoma pathway that lack drug treatments. A total of 15 proteins were identified as pathway starters or […]

Dream catcher: a machine that can read your dreams

What did you dream about last night? Have you ever struggled to remember exactly what you saw in your dream? Don’t worry, let science do it for you: a team of researchers has built the first ever dream-reading machine! Dreams are common for all of us. We have all experienced vivid visual content during sleep, and often times we wake up to tell others about the imagery that we saw. As normal as dreaming is, […]
