How often do you see a 15 year old researcher. Not very often, right? And how often do you see a 15 year old researcher winning theGorden E Moore Award for his work in developing a new method to detect pancreatic cancer? After school, Jack Andraka goes to Johns Hopkins lab where he can work on developing this method. His test is 90% accurate, 400 times more sensitive and 26.000 times less expensive than the methods used today. On February 12th he wasinvited by The President of the United States to join him at the State of the Union. Jack shows us that it’s never too early to follow your dreams and use your knowledge to change the world. He just became US STEM ambassador for Futuristex and spoke at the Royal Society of Medicine as youngest speaker ever.
