Intel STS 2014 Top Winners Announced
Eric S. Chen, 17, of San Diego, CA won the top award of $100,000 at the Intel Science Talent Search 2014 for his research of potential new drugs to treat influenza. His interdisciplinary approach combined computer modeling with structural studies and biological validation, with a focus on drugs that inhibit endonuclease.
Second place and $75,000 went to Kevin Lee of Irvine, CA who developed a faster and computationally efficient mathematical model to describe the shape of the heart as it beats using the principles of fluid mechanics.
Third place and $50,000 went to William Henry Kuszmaul of Lexington, MA, who developed a new approach to the mathematics of modular enumeration with applications to a wide number of problems in computer science, bioinformatics and computational biology.
