Angela Zhang is, and she’s just been awarded the $100,000 Grand Prize in the Individual category of the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. Her project was entitled “Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells.”

Her creation is being heralded as a “Swiss army knife of cancer treatment.” Zhang managed to develop a nanoparticle that can be delivered to the site of a tumor through the drug salinomycin. Once there it kills the cancer stem cells. However, Zhang went further and included both gold and iron-oxide components, which allow for non-invasive imaging of the site through MRI and Photoacoustics.

As to why she chose this as her project, Zhang explains that she was surprised when looking at the survival rates of patients receiving cancer treatment. As cancer stem cells are resistant to many forms of cancer treatment, it seemed like an area worth focusing on. Her nanoparticle is award-winning due to the fact it has the potential to overcome cancer resistance while offering up the ability to monitor the effects of the treatment in real-time using existing imaging techniques.

Zhang’s achievement is impressive considering she is only 17 years old, but also due to the level of understanding required to create such a nanoparticle in the first place. She has spent over 1,000 hours since 2009 researching and developing the particle, and wants to go on to study chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, or physics. Her dream job is to be a research professor.

The Siemens Competition is in its 13th year and aims to highlight talent at the high school level for those interested in science research. Last year 15-year-old Benjamin Clark won the Individual category for his work into how stars are born. In 2009 Ruoyi Jiang won for his research into chemotherapy drug resistance.

I think we can all agree this is a very worthwhile competition, and long may it continue if it pushes young minds to create solutions to some of our biggest problems

I'm glad there are still some programs in American schools that allow this. I have no idea how she built a nanno particle. In every school i have ever been in such equipment does not exist. But did she make it or design it the article is unclear as it says "creation" which could mean either. Either way I am glad she got the 100k Cancer is a big business for many. But not for student they don't make any money, so it's wonderful the incentive was there and this brain is being rewarded for all her work. Thank you capitalism.

On another note, this story has made an astonishing lack of major news. As our scientists are paid to lie about the climate, being bust twice now in huge stashes of email exchanges admitting their guilt, doesn't it make you wonder about how sincere research into curing cancer has really been? Politics pollutes science. We see that clearly in climate-gate. Could their be a cancer-gate? We've got to get government's hand out of science. By the way the private foundation that spends 7 million a year to gather all these bright kids and give them a chance to reach their potential is out of Germany. This could be a cure for cancer, or at least a way to treat cancer once it is diagnosed. Funded by a private corporation for less than one hour of the war in Afghanistan.

Less money for grunts and bombs, more money for nerds!

Hi I'm smarter than you or your kids.

I'm glad there are still some programs in American schools that allow this. I have no idea how she built a nanno particle. In every school i have ever been in such equiptment does not exist.

What the mind can accomplish when it's not bombarded with bullshit is amazing. Awesome kid.

She's young. Too bad she'll probably be dead soon. Cancer is too big a business for many.

When they put you in the internment camp, if you're really, really good, they might let you watch Dancing With The Stars.

yep I am guessing she moved here from China or something.

it was not powered by water it was powered by hydrogen and that fuel-cell tech does not work as it takes as much energy to break the hydrogen off from H2O as what you get out of it. AND before you toss up "cold fusion" which is also BS, the "scientist" that promoted all that garabage back in the day was none other than Steven Jones the same kook with all the nanno-thermite 911 bullshit promoted by captain kook Alex Jonestown and the same guy who also claimed to have found the bones of jesus...in America. yeah he's a career bullshitter.

to be clear to anyone reading this who doesn't know me 911 was absolutely a multi-intelligence run covert operation it was not what the US is spoon feeding people. but jonestown loose change and that ilk are way way off target. If you want to know what happened without the bavarian death cults and vague groups and generic sloganeering then see this www.warbydeception.com

"War on Cancer," those magic words should tell you all you need to know.

Stephen Jones corrupted P&F's LENR work, similar to what he did with his 911 "contributions". That doesn't mean you should trust the official account.

clearly the official story is crap but Alex putting Steven Jones and Charlie Sheen at the front of things was an intentional attempt to paint crazy on the whole topic. I am telling you that guy is a paid well poisoner. He has been paid off. Then he promotes Fetzer and Icke. Really plane holograms and aliens... I would not trust Gerald Clemente either. Jonestown is full of snakes.

This car doesn't run on gasoline. But, the Maineacs who invented it haven't been found dead yet. :lol:

Men set new record powering car with COKE and MENTOS
Junk Food-Powered Car Sets New Record
December 9, 2011
http://connecticut.cbslocal.com/2011/12 ... ew-record/

BUCKFIELD, Maine (AP) – The Maine guys known for creating colorful geysers from Diet Coke and Mentos candies say they’ve set a distance record for a vehicle with soda-and-candy-powered propulsion.

Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz created a single-seat rocket car powered by 54 bottles of Coke Zero and 324 Mentos. They say the Mark II traveled 239 feet, improving upon last year’s 220 feet with only half the fuel. They posted video of a 209-foot attempt online.

Voltz said Thursday they incorporated a simple piston-and-cylinder mechanism to get the vehicle moving. He says it’s powerful enough that people shouldn’t try the experiment at home.

The Buckfield-based entertainers shot to fame five years ago when they wore lab coats and goggles during their online videos demonstrating elaborate geysers set to music.

Europium is considered a rare earth metal. These metals are moderately to highly toxic. The symptoms of toxicity of the rare earth elements include writhing, ataxia, labored respiration, walking on the toes with arched back, and sedation. The rare earth elements exhibit low toxicity by ingestion exposure. May lead to production of skin and lung granulomas.
