I have played clarinet in high school band for 5 years.My goals for the future include graduating high school with a grade point average above 90%, and being able to continue my leaning with either university or other post secondary education. My project was inspired by the multiple intelligence theory. Emily and I were intrigued to learn more about our classmates through tests based on the multiple intelligence.

The Wonderful World of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Region:Prairie Valley
City:Vibank, SK
School:Vibank School
Abstract:Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) have an immense potential that is not yet being harnessed, because current methods used to create iPSC are inefficient and potentially harmful. This study investigates which method or process of making iPSC has the best possibility to find a cure to genetic disorders, including Autism and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It is determined that the adeno-associated virus has the most potential.
