Congratulations Vedant Singh (Class of 2019) for being named a Semifinalist in the 2017 Siemens Competition in Math, Science, and Technology. Vedant was one of 491 students across the United States who was recognized with this honor; his project was one of 300.
This year more than 1800 projects were submitted, an all-time high. Vedant researched at Stony Brook University where he was a fellow at the Garcia Research Program under the direction of Dr. Miriam Rafailovich.
The title of Vedant’s project is: Evaluating the Effects of Graphene-Loaded Poly(4-vinylpyridine) Electrospun Fiber Scaffolds and Spun-cast Thin Films on the Proliferation and Differentiation of Dental Pulp Stem Cells in vitro.
Tomorrow, Vedant will find out if his work will represent New York State as a Regional Finalist. Congratulations to Vedant!
