# Miracle Cure in Antarctica

Why?

In my cure class, I did research about how scientists found HIV treatments in Antarctica.The reason I did it is to show people what is going on in other countries and the treatments that are available. Please see my poster below:

Why did you go to the UIC biological science lab?

For my global health cure course, we are focusing about finding some cures for many disease. We went to the UIC bio. lab to find out research between animals and humans. I met with four scientists there.

1)The mouse lab with Dr.Tien Wang

Question: Why are you doing your research?

Answer: The goal is that we want to find heart disease cures and know how we are related to animals.

2) Elegans worm lab with Dr.Pete Okkema

Question: How would you benefit your work?

Answer:  From working in the morning, to the end of the day, he discovers new things everyday. He looks at worm genes that are related to human.

3)Yeast lab with Dr.David Stone

Question:How long have you done your yeast experiment?

Answer: Four to five years of research.

4)Engineering bio lab with Dr.Brian Kay

Question:Are you willing to find any treament for diseases?

Answer:Yes, I think about sharing somes idea with people to help find treatment for diseases.

# Why do we use mathematical theorems in understanding the spreading of disease?

INTRODUCTION

In my disease class, I researched diseases with one equation that helped me to succeed in my understanding. I looked at R=L/A, where( L) is average life span of population. (A) is average age of infection. (R) is basic reproduction number . The reason why scientists use math to help find solutions for the United Nations Millennium Development Goal is because of two reasons. 1)To help people to understand diseases. 2)To help combat diseases determined by the millennium development goals.

The reason scientists use mathematical models on disease is:

1) To understand diseases.

• To know how fast a disease spreads.

• To know the number of percentages of the people who are affected by disease.

• To know what kind of disease people are suffering from.

• How long does the disease last.

• (world lung foundation, 2010)

2) To know how to treat people to help solve the millennium development goals:

• When to give medicine to the people.

• To know the amount of medical preparation.

• How many days should a person take her/his medicine.

• how much money the hospital going to spend to buy the medicine.

• in child health is to give them the right medicine and to know the age so they can’t overdose from taking medicine.

(Medical Process Today, Gapminder 2011)

CONCLUSION SUMMARIZE

In my research, I looked at one equation, R=L/A. This equation was important because of two reasons. First is to understand diseases and to know how to help people. Math is important to our lives because it let us do the right things. We can save people and help the world.

# Understanding diarrhea

In my disease class I was doing research about diarrhea. Please look at my presentation below.

# DNA Lab

For our disease class, we went to a DNA lab. We researched how disease is related to math. It is important for scientists to help people understand our body.What did you do? We ask the scientists many questions about DNA. I learned that DNA come from our parents and there are 100 trillion cells in our body.
The three question I ask the scientist
1) Why do we use mathematics’s to study diseases?
The reason math is important because we need it in all of biology. We need it to study population and to study individuals.

2) Does DNA die?
Yes, DNA die when a person dies.

3) What happen when we don’t have enough  DNA?
It depends on the person, it may kill someone when they have bad DNA.
