My name is Simran Singh and I am a grade 7 student at Bishop Hamilton Montessori School. I enjoy a different variety of sports including badminton, swimming and taekwondo. I have been doing taekwondo since I was seven, and currently obtain a black stripe. I have always had a passion for science, specifically neurology. In my school, I had ranked 1st place at the science fair, and 1st place at the Ottawa Regional Science Fair. I was also awarded the "Future Leader in Science" award at Parliament Hill by the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada. In this project, I have created a novel diagnostic method for Parkinson's disease. It is hoped that this project will advance the future diagnostic tools for Parkinson's disease. In the future, I would like to pursue neurosurgery and become a neurological surgeon. My advice to students who are thinking of doing a science project is: if you have a passion for something that seems impossible to do, go for it, because you never know that it may just be possible.

The Development of a Novel Diagnostic Method for Parkinson’s Disease
Ville:Ottawa, ON
École:Bishop Hamilton Private
Sommaire:This project introduces a novel method for the detection of Parkinson's disease. A procedure was established to create an aptamer-based method for the detection of alpha-synuclein, a protein that accumulates and forms plaque in multiple neurodegenerative disorders. Using an aptamer that is bound to a fluorescent tag, alpha-synuclein was detected in mice brain tissue. This method shows great promise in the future disease detection.
