Hi, I am Yaseen Abbas and I am a grade eight student at As-Sadiq School in Thornhill, Ontario. I have huge interest in the field of preventive medicine, and I strongly believe in the statement ‘prevention is better than cure’. Today, while health professionals engage in understanding disease processes and therapeutic agents, there is a need to emphasize on the recognition of disease precursors and creation of prophylactic drug formulations. To achieve this, I am actively involved in studying cellular morphometry utilizing non- invasive specimen procurement methods. I conducted my experiment at the Michener Institute, utilizing modern technology and lab equipment. In the future, I hope to work in a pharmaceutical lab for quantitative analysis of my theoretical drug formulation. I further intend to highlight the significance of a mass screening program for lung cancer. Aside from this passion, I enjoy swimming, soccer, and volleyball. I actively participate in volunteer activities at the local community center and other activities within school such as Mathematica and public speaking contests. For future science fair participants, my advice is that science fair is not just about winning. Try to find solutions to the ‘unanswered questions’ while focusing on the overall impact on society.

Anthocyanins: A Natural Deterrent to Carcinogenesis
City:Richmond Hill, ON
School:St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic H.S.
Abstract:In this project, the anticancer prophylactic and therapeutic properties of anthocyanins were studied. This was achieved by observing oral and urinary cytomorphologic patterns in smokers upon anthocyanin exposure and withdrawal over a 2.5 year period. Upon analyzing the results of this study, the pharmacological properties of anthocyanins, and the various modes of systemic drug dissemination, a transdermal anthocyanin drug delivery system was theoretically designed.
