India’s sting in US! Indian origin student won this competition, got Rs 2 crore

India’s sting has once again sounded in the world’s most powerful country, the US. An Indian-origin teenager Neil Mudgal has won the prestigious US High Schoolers Science Prize worth Rs 2.60 crore for developing a computer model on the structure of RNA molecules. This model can help in early diagnosis of diseases.

17-year-old Neel Mudgal was declared the winner of the Regeneron Science Talent Competition. Ambika Grover, 17, finished sixth with $80,000 and Sidhu Pachipala, 18, finished ninth with $50,000.

How many contestants were there?
About 2,000 high school students competed in the Science Talent Search, of which 40 were selected for the final round. Mudgal’s computational biology and bioinformatics project could help develop treatments for cancer, autoimmune and other diseases more easily, according to the Society for Science, which runs the competition sponsored by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Grover has developed an injectable microbubble to reduce blood clots and treat stroke victims by restoring blood flow to the brain.

Which model was designed by Sidhu Pachipala?
Pachipala used machine learning to assess the suicide risk of a patient. This assessment can be correlated with a person’s psychological health and suicide risk.

Pachipala, chosen by the finalists as Most Exemplary, was also presented with the Seaborg Award. The winner of the Science Talent Search program, originally sponsored by Westing House and now associated with current sponsor Regeneron, has won 11 Nobel Prizes and two Fields Medals for mathematics.

George Yankopoulos, co-founder and president of New York State-headquartered Regeneron, was himself a 1976 Science Talent Search winner. 

That experience inspired her to work on finding cures for diseases, and I can only hope that this year’s students will be similarly inspired to become the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators who will solve the world’s greatest challenges. will work to develop solutions for.
