Canada-Wide Science Fair Wraps Up In Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Canada Wide Science Fair is wrapping up at the University of Lethbridge.

 

Almost 500 of the country's top scientists between grades 7 and 12 were here to show off their projects and compete for nearly $1-million in cash, prizes and scholarships.

 

19-year-old Adam Noble from Peterborough Ontario won the top prize for his cancer research. He says his was able to "develop a tumor targeted treatment with silver nanoparticles that I could concentrate to the tumors and then induce apoptosis in the cancer cells, so that's tricking the cancer cells into committing suicide and I could shrink the tumors very quickly and shrink them by 45 percent in 8 days and I could do that in lung cancer, cervical cancer, skin cancer and neuroblastoma."

 

Noble says when he gets home, he will start up pre-clinical trials at the beginning of June.
