OSR Student Heads to International Science & Engineering Fair

OSR Student Heads to International Science & Engineering Fair

Original Science Research student Tista Goswami is headed to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), beginning tomorrow and running through next Fri.! Tista -- whose project titled "SMART-Screen: A Point-of-Care COVID-19 Active Replication Detection System" recently earned a Grand Prize at the Westchester Science and Engineering Fair -- will travel to Atlanta to compete for over $8 Million in prizes along with 1,800 other top science students from 70 countries.

Tista worked with her mentor to develop this novel COVID-19 test that can accurately detect active spreaders of COVID much faster than other laboratory tests. The test can also be used in the field in locations such as airports, hospitals, and other point-of-care locations. Congratulations and good luck Tista!
