A World Without Cancer

Jack Andraka | TEDxRedmond

Jack Andraka was named the Gordon E. Moore Award winner at Intel ISEF 2012 (basically the Olympics for high school science research) for his novel, non-invasive paper sensor to detect pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer before they become invasive, for only 3 cents in 5 minutes (no specialized training or bulky equipment needed). The sensor can also look at cancer drug resistance and how effective a cancer treatment is, and look at E.coli, salmonella, and rotavirus in food and water safety and blood borne pathogens such as AIDS/HIV and other STDs. In addition to the Moore award, Jack won the Google award for “Solving a large and seemingly impossible problem with a simple solution with broad impacts”; his prize money totals over $100,000.
