Jack Andraka

16 year-old scientist and humanitarian Jack Andraka has already changed the world. At 15, he won the Intel ISEF Gorden E. Moore award, the $75,000 top prize, for his invention of an early stage Pancreatic Cancer diagnostic test. Being referred to “the 15 year-old who changed the course of medicine” was not enough for Jack.

Jack has put together a team of teenagers from across the country and entered the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE competition that will be judged and decided in the end of 2015. The goal of the Tricorder X PRIZE competition is to create a device the size of a smart phone that can make reliable health diagnoses, which would be available directly to consumers at anytime, anywhere.

If you thought Jack’s Pancreatic Cancer diagnostic test was a game changer, just wait until 2015 to see what his team unveils. It will change your mind!
