California Teen Wins $100K Scholarship for Her Nano Research

Angela Zhang creates nanoparticle that she describes as a “swiss army knife of cancer treatments.”
Ms. Zhang, 17, received top honors at the Siemens Foundation annual high school science competition. The teen’s research was inspired by her personal experiences with cancer, including a great grandfather who suffered from liver cancer, and her grandfather passed away from lung cancer a few years ago. Her particle releases the drug when activated by a laser, and Ms. Zhang’s research shows that the particle can deliver treatment directly and effectively to tumor cells and not affect healthy cells around it.RSS feed of Nano World News
