  • 0

In 2016, a teenage boy announced that he had found a way to make triple-negative breast cancer, a deadly and untreatable form of the disease, treatable. That’s impressive enough without this next fact: he claimed the breakthrough a year after winning the Google Science Fair for creating an early, noninvasive test for Alzheimer’s Disease. The 16-year-old Krtin Nithiyanandam hails from Surrey, England and says he first became interested in the medical sciences after he had ear surgery as a young child. Clearly, his interest has taken off.
