Young Scientist of the year?

Hi folks,

Well summer is nearly over and the blog is about to start up again for the new academic year. We should be back in full-swing in September.

In the meantime I came across this amazing story that highlights the creativity of science, where a 15 year old boy has developed a more sensitive prostate cancer test. Interesting that 99 out of 100 professors he approached rejected his application (a sure sign of the blinkered scientific thinking that opponents of science are always criticizing us for), but one had the foresight to take him on and help him develop the idea. An inspiring story for science and good news for health care (particularly for those of us within a prostate gland) 🙂

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
