Structure of Accelerator Track

Lectures

No prior AP biology or advanced knowledge is required. At the beginning, we introduce the basic concepts required to follow the course.

Guided Group discussions

We conduct group discussions based on the literature and publications, to help identify the core questions and demonstrate the process of pursuing solutions systematically and scientifically.

One-on-one meetings with Instructors

Dedicated sessions with the Instructors allow for the students to discuss their individual preferences in terms of the future course of study, explore the college majors and elective subjects that may align with their interest or the prospects they entail.

Capstone project

As part of the program, students undertake guided scientific projects. Students have the opportunity to select a topic of their choice from any of the subjects covered in the course. Our instructors collaborate with students to assist them in identifying pertinent scientific literature, enabling the formulation of valid hypotheses.
Our unique and robust infrastructure, provides a broad spectrum of resources, fostering collaboration among students as they engage in their projects. Our training approach encourages students to delve into advanced topics, cultivating a deeper understanding.
The findings from the study are presented at a concluding colloquium. Further, students have the opportunity to present their research findings at scientific symposiums and competitions, offering them a taste of the real-world impact their work can have.

Project Reports from Our Recent Students

Circulating Tumor Cells

https://elioacademy.org/student/23/iman-ali

Iman Ali
(Galaxy International School)

Metastasis, the process by which cancer spreads, represents one of the most perilous aspects of the disease. Coined by Jean Claude Recamier in 1829, metastasis serves as the defining characteristic of a malignant tumor Circulating tumor cells (CTCs), also referred to as circulating cancer cells, play a pivotal role in this phenomenon.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Chance White
(Saint Ignatius College Preparatory)

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is an aggressive cancer of the blood and bone marrow which inhibits normal hematological development. The disease is characterized by abnormal proliferation of premature white blood cells known as myeloid cells. The uncontrolled colonial expansion of myeloid cells inhibits healthy red blood cell division in patients.

Sweat Allergy

https://elioacademy.org/student/23/minji-seo

MinJi Seo
(Harbin Wanbang School)

Sweating is a vital bodily function for temperature regulation. When body temperature rises, the hypothalamus signals eccrine sweat glands to release water, cooling the body. These glands excrete a liquid mixture containing water, sodium, potassium, amino acids, and more. This fluid, known as sweat, aids temperature reduction through evaporative cooling.

Atrial Septal Defect

https://elioacademy.org/student/23/kirthi-gopinath

Kirthi Gopinath
(Mission San Jose High School)

Congenital Heart Defects (CDHs) are present at birth and affect the structure of a baby's heart as well as its function. One specific CDH, Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), causes a hole to form in the septum that divides the right and left atria. This hole causes irregular blood flow by allowing blood from the left atrium to flow to the right atrium

Phenylketonuria (PKU)

https://elioacademy.org/student/23/francesca-gomez

Francesca Chevarría Gómez
(Max Uhle Peruvian-German School)

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder, which means, two copies of the mutation must be present for the disease to develop. PKU can be caused by 400 different known variants in the PAH gene. The phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme performs the breakdown of the amino acid phenylalanine (phe) into tyrosine (Tyr), which is required by the body to produce stress neurotransmitters such as epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine.
