15 Year Old Develops New and Better Method to Detect Cancer [VIDEO]

Jack Andraka won the Gordon E. Moore award from Intel in May 2012 with his cancer detecting method at the young age of 15! Andraka explains he had an uncle who passed away from Pancreatic Cancer and that’s when his interest in the field began. His technique he says is 168 times faster, over 26,000 times less expensive, and over 400 times more sensitive allowing detection before the disease becomes invasive. Remarkable!

He is a pretty normal kid besides coming up with one of the greatest discoveries in disease detection in the last ten or so years. He has a Twitter account with the bio that reads:

I can’t wait to see where else this kid goes in life, and I hope science and medicine are buckled up and ready for the ride!
