Alongside the global push to transition from non-renewable to renewable energy sources, there also exists a need to improve energy […]
Abstract Alzheimer Disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects about 5.8 million people today, and is expected to grow to 13.8 million in 2050. AD is a disorder that begins on the biochemical level with neurofibrillary tangles and β-amyloid plaques. As the biochemical pathology accumulates throughout different regions of the brain, from the
1. Aim and Motivation a. Motivation What is light? Many scientists from the past have questioned this. What I learned about light through science classes and literature research is that light has two different characteristics. In summary, light exhibits wave-particle duality. Scientific observation of the nature of light is a complicated problem. Einstein\’s photoelectric experiment
Dylan Singh Sanghera 06th July – 31st July In collaboration with: Abstract: Thousands of people go missing every year, however, there is little evidence based research on how forensic teams should use thermal imaging technologies in order to increase success in locating a corpse, whether in water or on land. The implications for this project
I recently had the chance to interview Dr. Raga Krishnakumar- a computational biologist with Sandia National Laboratories. Apart from studying genomics and bioinformatics, she mentors young scientists and is a passionate advocate for diversity in STEM. We spoke about her background, her experiences as a biologist, and her opinions on representation in STEM. Tell me
Katie Bean As part of the YSJ’s ‘Women in STEM’ series, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to interview a Wind Tunnel Technician for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, Dr Kathryn Richards. Not only is her field a very intriguing and technologically orientated one, but she is also an ambassador for ‘Dare

Abstract: Galileo Galilei, an astronomer, physicist, and philosopher of the 16th and 17th centuries is credited with the discovery of several scientific instruments and phenomena that contribute further to the understanding of modern science. At the time in Italy, even when religion was dominant, he was one of the primary proponents of scientific innovation over religion.
Abstract The 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has caused a major pandemic affecting millions of people. The virus is a beta coronavirus and is closely related to the MERS and other SARS viruses. Replicase Polyprotein 1ab is the key polyprotein which is vital for virus replication as it contains the key proteinases that are responsible for
