Humans need certain conditions to ensure health for survival on Mars. Learn how angiogenesis, regeneration and mitochondrial health affects their health!
Imagine humans have successfully settled a colony on Mars. There would be necessary components to keep and sustain their health on this new and strange terrain. This includes how angiogenesis initiates the process of new blood and vessel growth. Students will witness how the human body can regenerate itself from wounds and also research immunity and what foods naturally boost the human immune system.

Lincoln Smith interviewed at medical schools across the country in two medical school application cycles, with two accompanying official administrations of the MCAT. He pursued programs that treated a specific type of quadraplegia in the first cycle, and those programs that studied cancer immunotherapy for his terminally ill father the second. He has taught and now prepares MCAT curriculum for pre-medicine students, passing his medical school application and MCAT knowledge on to aspiring medical professionals. Lincoln went on to teach the MCAT at a major Test Prep company for the next three years. Subsequent to this, he has continued to tutor the MCAT privately, with a spin off P98 CARS curriculum from his 98th percentile CARS section. He has a 97th percentile overall MCAT score. H...Read More
