Once again Indian-American youth were shining at the Intel Science Search. The most prestigious search for talented scientist of tomorrow - Junior Nobel Prize for Science! Congratulations to all the winners, participants and family - you make us proud!

Fourth Place: Narendra Tallapragada, 17, of Burke, Va., received a $25,000 scholarship for his project to find ways to simplify complex models of atomic and molecular interactions. His goal is to one day create “mini-computers” that can be used, for instance, to create automatic insulin pumps inside diabetic patients or intelligent clothing that responds to temperature.

Eighth Place: Preya Shah, 17, of Setauket, N.Y., received a $20,000 scholarship for designing and synthesizing a tumor-targeting drug for cancer treatment that represents a new approach to delivery of chemotherapy agents and possibly treatment of multi-drug resistant cancer without causing significant side effects.

Ninth Place: Nilesh Tripuraneni, 18, of Fresno, Calif., received a $20,000 scholarship for formulating a set of hydrodynamic equations that may provide a potential method to better understand the first movements of the universe and could aid in the development of a quantum theory of gravity

Asian Indians are less than 1% of population.
We were more than 20% of finalist! (8 out of top 40)
We were top 30% of winners! (3 out of top 10)
Jay Ho!
