The URNCST Journal Case Competition provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to experience the peer review and publication process through participation in a case competition. Participants submit an abstract of a research protocol based on a topic proposed by the URNCST Journal. The following abstracts were submitted by undergraduate students to the 3rd URNCST Journal Case Competition held during April 2019. To learn more about this abstract competition and submit your own, please visit: https://urncst.com/index.php/competition/about. This case competition’s topic was on sex-based comparisons research. The emergence of sex-based research has become more prominent within the last decade. Sex is often defined as the biological or genetic makeup of the body. The impact of sex-based differences has been observed in diverse fields, ranging from cardiovascular health, to addictions and mental wellness, to drug efficacy and its cellular implications. As a result, we welcomed abstract submissions from any science or technology discipline exploring sex-based comparisons in their research field.
