Biochemistry and Bioengineering Research Brings California Students Closer to Nation's Highest Science Honor for High School Students
Date:11/5/2011

inomycin to the site of the tumor.  The multifunctional nanoparticle combines therapy and imaging into a single platform, with the gold and iron-oxide components allowing for both MRI and Photoacoustic imaging.  

"Angela created a microscopic particle that is like a Swiss army knife of cancer treatment," said competition judge Julius Su, PhD, Chemistry Researcher, California Institute of Technology.  "It seeks out cancer cells, shows us where they are, and then destroys them.  Angela showed great initiative in bringing together a wide array of technologies to solve a vitally important health problem.  It would be a remarkable accomplishment of a scientist of any age and is certainly exceptional for a high school student."

Angela is interested in nanomedicine and molecular imaging because they allow her to transform her interests in physics, chemistry and biology into solutions for current health problems.  She won the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) 2011 Grand Award and the ISEF 2010 Grand Award (both for medicine and health science).  Angela plays golf and the piano and would like to major in chemical or biomedical engineering or physics.  She is a 2010 Siemens Competition Regional Finalist who put in 1,000 hours on her current project.  Angela hopes to become a research professor.  Her mentor was Dr. Zhen Cheng of Stanford University.

The Winning Team

Jeffrey Ling, a junior at Palo Alto Senior High School in Palo Alto, California, and Helen Jiang, a junior at Henry M. Gunn High School, won the team category and will share a $6,000 scholarship for their project, Novel Diagnostic and Prognostic Utilities Integrating Clinical and Molecular Findings to Manage Necrotizing Enterocolitis in Neonatal Care.

Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) is the most common and serious gastrointestinal disease and a leading cause of overall morbidity an
