To be honest, I’m not sure if cancer-treating nanosystem is the same as nanobots, but hey, I’m glad someone knows what’s going on…like this seventeen year old, Angela Zhang!
At the age of 17 I was paying attention in college, but still enjoying the student life as much as studying towards my career goals. What I wasn’t doing was working at the cutting edge of cancer treatment and developing a potential cure.
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. (Source: Geek.com)
Although people are different, could we “reverse engineer” Zhang’s education and efforts and see what that involved?
