Intel finalists seek solutions

Abstract:
A contribution to the medical field was also the purpose of HAFTR junior Alex Ramek's project with Jericho High School junior Adam Fields. Ramek and Fields came up with two techniques to diagnose cancer at the single-cell level, which would lead to earlier detection of the disease. The partners also created a system that could eliminate many of the side effects of chemotherapy.
Ramek plans to continuing his research at SUNY-Stony Brook.
HAFTR senior Daniel Katz took a similar route in studying cancer cells, but applied a keen interest in nanotechnology. He developed a method of synthesizing nanoparticles that are highly toxic to cancer cells, creating a "nanotherapy" that could eliminate many of chemotherapy's side effects. "You can obtain extraordinary properties from otherwise ordinary materials," said Katz.

Katz is so captivated with the nano concept that he hopes to open his own nanotechnology company after he studies at Cornell University.
