This is a great idea for a project and it’s good you are starting early. Resveratrol is a phenolic component of many plants that may have many physiological effects on humans and adiponectin is a hormone that regulates glucose levels and fatty acid catabolism. There are not a lot of published studies on this subject, so this would be a unique topic for a science fair project. A study of the effects of resveratrol on adiponectin levels is a great idea and would have significant implications for human health issues.
However, doing a study like this in humans would be like a clinical trial and would require supervision from a qualified medical institution as well as approval from a scientific review committee. I’m not sure that you would be able to get approval for a project working with human subjects.
However, it would definitely be worthwhile to study in a different animal like obese or diabetic mice. You would still need to obtain approval from your local scientific review committee, but it should be possible to do the project.
If you have not done a project like this before, here is the information for getting approval for a project. For a top winning project, it is very important to follow all of the rules.http://sciencebuddies.org/science-fair- ... _src.shtml
Do you have access to a laboratory where you could grow mice? Do you have a source of resrveratrol and a method for testing it? Do you have a method for measuring adiponectin? The final selection of your project will depend on your resources, so you should consider all possible options at this point.
Have you done background reading on the topic? Do you have an idea for a specific experimental protocol? Was the article that gave you the idea for this project a scientific paper? Please let me know if you need more information on this topic.
