I am a grade 11 student in London, Ontario, Canada who attends A.B. Lucas Secondary School. I am currently a string bassist in Lucas Concert Band and a representative of the school music council. Also, I am in the school badminton team as a "men-singles" player. Concerning community activities, I play a monthly concert to a group of elders as a violinist. My hobbies and interests include scientific experiments, music, and sports. After joining SMARTS, I have begun to promote science to students by founding a science club at my school and giving presentations at the local public schools. Thanks to the wonderful experience I had through the local university lab, I hope to become a microbiologist when I grow up.

Garlic-Induced Gene Expression Changes in Streptococcus pyogenes Predict a Reduc
Division:Sciences de la vie / Innovation environnementale
Région:London District
Ville:London, ON
École:A.B. Lucas S.S.
Sommaire:This project hypothesized that a natural product like fresh garlic could decrease the virulence factor expression of S. pyogenes. To address the hypothesis, qRT-PCR was performed to see the decrease in transcriptions of tested virulence factors (speA, speC, slo, scp) in the presence of various garlic concentrations. In conclusion, the result supported the hypothesis, suggesting that garlic could potentially be used to prevent streptococcal infections.
