Canadian girl, 16, invents disease-fighting, anti-aging compound using tree particles
Date:5/8/2012

'paired' NCC with a well-known nano-particle called a buckminster fullerene. These 'buckyballs' (carbon molecules that look like a soccer ball) are already used in cosmetic and anti-aging products she says. The new NCC-buckyball combination acted like a 'nano-vacuum,' sucking up free radicals and neutralizing them.

"The results were really exciting," she says and especially since cellulose is already used as filler and stabilizer in many vitamin products. One day those products may be super-charged free radical neutralizers thanks to NCC, she hopes.

Dr. Yao was deeply impressed by Janelle's hardworking, creative thinking, organization and presentation skills. "It was a pleasure to have her in my lab since Janelle is not only a task-orientated young lady, also she also gets along very well with others."

Janelle, who moved to Canada from Singapore five years ago, and who with her sister Vivienne won first place in last year's SBCC Southwestern Ontario regional competition, says she loves the independence and opportunity to do original research that the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge offers. She hopes to become a medical doctor and researcher.

The Hon. Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources Skills Development Canada and keynote speaker at the awards ceremony, said: "Our government's top priority is job creation, and economic growth and we recognize that as the future workforce, young Canadians have much to contribute to our country's long term prosperity. We proudly support the BioGENEius Challenge as an excellent way to inspire young people to explore rewarding careers in high demand fields."

Sanofi Pasteur Canada President Mark Lievonen, who presented the first place prize, said: "When we founded the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada 19 years ago we believed then, as we do now, in the potential of our youth to develop the next big breakthrough in science. When I see the collaboration among education, government and indus
