Jack Andraka Stanford Medicine X Keynote

Sixteen-year-old science phenom Jack Andraka delivered a MedX keynote..check it out.

His test to detect pancreatic cancer made headlines after he won the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair grand prize in 2012. The test only costs 3 cents and takes five minutes to run. It’s 168x faster than the current model and is over 26,000x less expensive and over 400x more sensitive than the current methods of diagnosis. BOOM. Teenagers are heavily impacting the medical arena and even outsmarting veterans.

Watch this commercial Intel made about him too. It was put together so nicely.
