Mariemont Students Work on Proposal for Cancer Research

Exploravision_2The Mariemont Elementary 6th grade ExploraVision teams spent an afternoon at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center‘s Genetics Lab learning from the new director, Dr. Harinder Singh, and his colleague, Dr Michelle Reed. Sixth grade students Ella Waltz, Alyssa Bach, Olivia Sullivan and Jackson Hacias are working on a futuristic proposal to develop a patch made of skin cells that have been engineered to identify cancer cells and then trigger an attack on the cancer cells by the immune system. Their project proposal will be submitted to the National Science Teacher Association’s Toyota ExploraVision contest at the end of this month.
