d women are leaders in ensuring the future social, medical and economic health and prosperity of the United States."

In the undergraduate category the bronze medal went to the University of Utah team for their mechanical leech. The invention substitutes a series of small hypodermic needles for the blood-sucking parasite still used today in hospitals post-surgically to improve blood circulation.

"For the past two days it's been an honor and an amazing personal experience to be a judge for the graduate-level inventors," says Jeffrey Pan, one of the graduate panel judges, representing CIC presenting sponsor the AbbVie Foundation.  "Each of these young inventors and their inventions represents not just a single insight, but something bigger. When it comes to inventing, they get it."

The graduate silver medal winner is Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Nisarg Shah for an implant with a growth surface to improve closing large, traumatic wounds. The graduate bronze medal winner is Johns Hopkins University's Isaac Kinde for his invention of an early detection system for ovarian and endometrial cancers.

A Harvard University team is the undergraduate silver medal winner with ChemoPatch, an invention that could dramatically change cancer treatment by enabling home-based chemotherapy.

The graduate-level gold medal team received $15,000 and $5,000 for their advisor; the undergraduate team received $12,500, and $4,000 for their advisor, from a total of almost $70 thousand in prizes provided by the Competition sponsors.
