Crafted by Cavin Xue '24, BioBlab is a blog that shines a spotlight on high school scientific research. It is also a product of CL Compass, a class within our Engineering & Applied Sciences Department where students can harness their passions and apply them in the real world setting by pitching, designing and implementing a project over the course of the academic year. Cavin, whose own daily ritual includes refreshing his morning feed to review new science news, saw an opportunity to build a hub of high school science research for his fellow science enthusiasts, as well as highlight the work being done in WRA's own science labs.

As your browse BioBlab, you'll find that Cavin has collected a series of vetted resources, including animated videos, high school scientific journals and a curated list of his favored science news sites. He has also taken on the task of documenting news and findings from this year's Cancer Immunology and Synthetic Biology students. One such article highlights the work done by Carmen Reed '24, Mira Zamarro '24 and Cavin, who are investigating the efficacy targeting the TCL1A protein as a potential method for developing a T-cell lymphoma vaccine.
