I define myself as a innovative challenge seeker who believes in being well-rounded and having a close connection with the creative world. From being the Head Prefect of my school and serving as the voice of our student body to being an internationally-recognized public speaker and debater, I enjoy communicating information just as much as I do in developing and synthesizing my creativity. Being a black belt in Goju-Ryu Karate as well as a runner and swimmer, I take personal fitness and discipline very seriously. Therefore, I decided to tackle an issue that deals with these values – the global epidemic of obesity. More specifically, I chose to investigate the effect of the inflammation caused by obesity on skeletal muscle tissue in humans of different ethnicities as I felt that today’s scales of measuring one’s health such as the BMI scale are too general and don’t give a fair representation of each kind of person as genetics play a significant role in one’s predisposition to disease and disorder. I plan to pursue this area of “immuno-metabolism” in post-secondary study, where I aim to study Health Sciences and progress into Medicine.

Skeletal Muscle Inflammatory Cytokine Expression Predicts Metabolic Disease Risk
Région:Bay Area
Ville:Mississauga, ON
École:MacLachlan College
Sommaire:The gene expression of cytokine C-C motif Ligand 2 (CCL2) was investigated in lean and overweight or obese skeletal muscle tissue from male and female subjects of both South Asian and European descent in order to assess risk of cardiovascular disorders and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Results of the experiment demonstrate that alternative measuring scales are needed to accurately assess metabolic disease risks.
