d mortality in premature infants.  In their project, the team set out to develop a data-driven system to help identify NEC infants most likely to progress to severe disease.  The team's approach integrates demographic, clinical and molecular-based classifiers in an effort to improve neonatal care.  

"Jeffrey and Angela used mass spectrometry in combination with clinical data, a novel approach which would give scientists and doctors the ability to predict the progression of the disease so they can optimize treatment," said competition judge Brian Williams, PhD, Staff Scientist, California Institute of Technology. "The data analysis, the team's main contribution, was done at an exceptionally high level.  A unique aspect of the work is that Jeffrey and Angela are planning to make the diagnostics available to physicians via smartphones."

Jeffrey Ling is captain of a Science Olympiad team and a 2011 USA junior Math Olympiad winner. He is active in community service, tutoring and helping middle school students with math and science.  Jeffrey plays the piano and enjoys playing Frisbee and badminton.  He hopes to become an inventor.

When Helen Jiang's younger sister was five years old, she broke her arm and had to go to the hospital. While staying there with her sister, Helen was inspired to find ways to help children born with diseases that forced them to stay in hospitals for long periods of time.  Helen is co-president of S.A.G.E Club (business club), where students create and promote their own businesses.  She plays volleyball, soccer and ultimate Frisbee and loves to sing and write lyrics.  Her dream job is to become a university professor.   The team's mentor was Dr. Karl Sylvester.

Regional Finalists

The remaining regional finalists each received a $1,000 scholarship.  Regional Finalists in the individual category were:
