Date:11/5/2011

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The shortlist of contenders for the highest science honor awarded to American high school students narrowed tonight as the winners of the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology Region One Finals were announced.  Cancer stem cell research earned top honors and the $3,000 Individual scholarship for Angela Zhang of Cupertino, California.  Research on molecular identification of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) won the $6,000 Team scholarship for Jeffrey Ling and Helen Jiang of Palo Alto, California.

The students presented their research this weekend to a panel of judges from California Institute of Technology (Caltech), host of the Region One Finals. They are now invited to advance to the National Finals in Washington, DC, December 2-5, 2011, where $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded, including two top prizes of $100,000.  The Siemens Competition, a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, is administered by the College Board.

"The Siemens Competition has a proud history of attracting awe-inspiring research projects from America's best and brightest and we are pleased to see that this year is no exception," said Jeniffer Harper-Taylor, president of the Siemens Foundation.  "We can all take heart in the remarkable work being done by this next generation of young innovators as exemplified by Angela Zhang, Jeffrey Ling and Helen Jiang."

The Winning Individual

Angela Zhang, a senior at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, California, won the individual category and a $3,000 college scholarship for her biochemistry project, Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells.

In her project, Angela aimed to design a targeted, gold and iron oxide-based nanoparticle with a potential to eradicate cancer stem cells through a controlled delivery of the drug sal
