Media Alert: See the Nation’s Brightest Young Scientific Innovators in Action at the Intel Science Talent Search

A new approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s, a model that can predict the likelihood of mortgage delinquency, and the development of new drug candidates that could potentially help in treating the common flu. These are just a few examples of the research currently being developed by 40 high school seniors who are poised to be the nation’s next scientific innovators. They’ll be in Washington, D.C. from March 6-12 to compete for more than $630,000 in the Intel Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science & the Public.
