A few months ago I started working on a science paper with one of my friends who is interested in veterinary medicine. We were given this opportunity after attending workshops at the University of Nottingham (click here for my post on my experience at these workshops). The topic chosen this year was stem cells which I was extremely happy about as I find stem cells to be an immensely absorbing area of science. The task was to write a science paper based on a thought experiment using stem cells.
Firstly, we came up with a couple of ideas and then carried out our initial research to decide on our best and most unique idea. Our final decision was to go with the use of stem cells in the treatment of otosclerosis.
The results of the submitted papers were published a couple of weeks ago and I am incredibly happy to announce that we passed with a distinction! I have not gone into too much detail about our actual idea but that is because the papers are going to published online in October and I will make sure I provide a link to our paper on this blog for anyone interested in reading the paper!
