PCHS Biomedical Science Students Present at Kentucky Chapter of the American Physiological Society
Five PCHS Biomedical Science students were selected to present scientific posters at the Kentucky Chapter of the American Physiological Society meeting on Saturday, March 23 at Northern Kentucky University. Laila Cook won 1st place in high school oral presentations with her project, titled “Gross and Microanatomical Effects of a High Protein Diet in a Murine Model”, an independent study that she has been working on for the past two years. Chloe, Bailee, Madison, and Lexie worked with Dr. Robin Cooper from the University of Kentucky using genetically modified fruit flies. Chloe and Bailee’s project, “Effects of temperature on an optogenetic response system in Drosophila”, won 1st place in the high school posters division while Madison and Lexie’s project, “Revisiting Mendel: Use of a behavioral assay to examine inheritance of traits in Drosophila”, won 2nd place in the high school posters division.
