11th grade student's science project may have found a cure for cystic fibrosis

#1
so self explanatory.

some kid had a science project. and it turns out the results of his experiment were far better than expected.

here's the story from a couple of links.

"“I have identified certain chemical structures that are key in the corrective effects of these molecules, as well as identified two molecular targets on the protein for future therapeutics,” he said."

He's 11.

To be fairthough when I was 16 all I did was wank, eat snacks and play video games... wait thats all I still do...

He's 16. Still thats my age and I dont know what he's going on about. If this is a cure I can see a good career ahead of him.

this man is of knowledge


Woo someone said i was smart, how silly

Age matters not, Size matters not

Good for the kid, question has to be asked though, why did a kid with spare time achieve this while lots of charities and research labs did not?

If he did discover a cure then he deserves a Nobel Prize. Seriously. CF is a terrible disease and the average life expectancy of people who have it is around 35 years.
#11
big deal. when i was 16 i could sweep pick.


There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Kudos for that guy! Maybe he'd be interested on working with me on finding alternative treatments for schizophrenia....

Yayyy I feel special atleast understanding what he's saying. Mind that required a university Chemistry course. . .

Not that I'd have absolutely ANY idea what he did or how to go about doing it...

Damn...Makes me feel like I'm kinda just slacking through life.

That's good news. My friend has CF and is 18. Apparently people with it don't usually live past childhood.

He's Asian.. Of course he's a genius, this is nothing new. Put down those text books and start wanking again guys. It's ok.

I'm 16 now.

I can play arpeggios.

I have had 2 girlfriends.

I once wanked 6 times in a day.

I once ate nothing but nutella for a week.

I'm 17 and I just finished wanking.

This is pretty amazing, though.
Finally he found a mentor in Dr. Christine Bear, a researcher at the Hospital for Sick Children’s Research Institute in Toronto, and she has invited him back to her lab to continue his work, he said.
Hot.
