A 17 year old girl had dreams of creating something to fight cancer and has won a $100,000 scholarship from the national science competition.
Angela Zhang, 17, won top individual honors and $100,000 at the Siemens Foundation’s Annual High School Science Competition in Washington D.C. The Monta Vista High School senior says her cancer fighting research could be helping patients in about 25 years.
Angela said “I created a nano-particle that is kind of like the Swiss Army knife of cancer treatment in that it can detect cancer cells, eradicate the cancer cells and then monitor the treatment response. So the major aim of the project was to personalize cancer medicine”
