Noted. Thanks so much for posting this wonderful video, Cal.
What a brilliant & determined young man this is! Now that he's created a simple & inexpensive test for pancreatic cancer, I wonder if one day he will be one who is among those to finding a cure. Sure is nice to know that our young people will be leading the way for many wonderful things like this.

It is wonderful that he was able to get that one chance to prove that he knows exactly what he is talking about. I think we will probably be hearing a lot more from this young scientist. Thanks Cal.

I wish this young man every success in the world and I greatly admire his tenacity in persuing his dream.Many young lad's of his age would have been discouraged by so many rejections and given up.His parents must be immensely proud of him as they should be.It also shows that brain power is not limited to adults only.

Greaet video! Saw a clip about him on TV after he won the Intn'l Science Fair. We will be hearing lots more from him, I am sure! Thanks, Cal. Really enjoyed this!

What an outstandingly, intelligent young man. I would have thought, given his presentation to the 200 universities, that more than one might have had some interest. Noted and shared.

I give this young man all the success in the world. My father died a horrible death from this cancer.

He was on Dr. Oz' show right after I read this in the AM. Pretty cool. He demonstrated how his strip works and Oz gave him his first "white" Dr. coat. Was really cool to see him in action. He's brilliant!
