Meet the Next Generation of Humane Scientists

NAVS Selects 2017 Humane Science Award Recipients at Intel ISEF

Last week, NAVS honored promising young scientists at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world’s largest international science competition for high school students in Los Angeles, California. This is the 16th year that we have participated in this preeminent science fair to present our Humane Science Award, which recognizes student projects that show scientific excellence while demonstrating ethics and respect for animals.

NAVS is honored to be the only animal advocacy organization allowed to present an award at this prestigious event. 

After reviewing hundreds of projects and interviewing many extraordinary students, we are pleased to announce that we have selected five exceptional students as recipients of the award. Each student will receive a cash prize for their outstanding work.

1st place: Andrea Teo, Translational Medical Science: Developing a High-throughput Platform for Drug Toxicity Screening
2nd place: Katherine Miles, Cellular and Molecular Biology: Autism and Genetics: Understanding the Role of AUTS2 in the Pathology of Autism Spectrum Disorder3rd place: Vishakk Rajendran, Meena Ravishankar, Jeremy Wang, Animal Sciences: Developing a Novel 3D-Printed Solution to Aid Healing Fractured Wing Bones of Wild Birds
