This 15-year-boy developed a test for pancreatic cancer that’s 168 times faster

After Andraka’s uncle died of pancreatic cancer, he decided to go ask some cancer experts for help. Of 200 hundred he asked, only one doctor of oncology was willing to provide him with a lab he could use after school. After spending many hours in the lab, Andraka successfully  developed a test for pancreatic cancer that is 168 times faster, 400 times more sensitive, and 26,000 times less expensive than the medical standard.

He looked beyond the experts and did his own thing.

Inspiring and so incredible. Here’s to Andraka who beat the experts. What a champ. He is only 15.

Well done to Intel for doing this.
