Cancer, Innovation and a Boy Named Jack

Jack-Andraka

Cancer, Innovation and a Boy Named Jack @ Forbes.

I’d like you to meet Jack Andraka. It’s a name you will be hearing a lot about–today, tomorrow and in the future.

Jack is a scientist and  innovator.  And his work on creating a simple test for the identification of pancreatic, lung and ovarian cancer is simply amazing.

Here are some of the facts:
• -His test is 168 times faster than what is currently available.
• -It’s 26,000 times less expensive.  That’s not a typo.
• -And it’s potentially almost 100% accurate.

Here’s what makes it even more astonishing:
• -Jack is 15 years old.
