I am devoted to my scientific research because of my personal connection to the topic. My mom was in a car accident twenty years ago and suffers from severe chronic pain in her neck and back. I will continue my research until I develop a pain-free protocol for using capsaicin so that my mom can use it instead of narcotics. I won first place in the regional Sanofi Aventis Biotalent Challenge, second place in Senior Life Sciences at London and District Science and Technology Fair, and the Western Imagination Award for my project. I plan to publish my findings in the near future. I am the co-president of my school’s Social Justice club and Snowboarding Club. I volunteer regularly at a physician’s office. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, collecting vintage cameras, snowboarding, fashion, concerts, traveling, acting, and art. I am interested in medical and biological sciences, and want to be involved in a medical career.

Capsaicin Admixture Found to Ease Initial Pain Using a Novel Invertebrate Model

Sommaire:Hot peppers contain the molecule Capsaicin, which causes an initial burning sensation followed by long-term numbness and, therefore, provides efficient pain relief. It has few side effects and no known drug interactions. To research Capsaicin, leeches were developed as an invertebrate model for pain research, since current models for pain research are vertebrates. By injecting 0.9% sodium chloride, the initial reaction to capsaicin was reduced.
