Three seniors from UNT's Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science were named among the top 300 scholars in the 2020 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation's oldest and most prestigious science and math competition. Eunyoung (Lucy) Kim (pictured above at left) and Nikhil Vicas (center), both of Coppell, along with Abhishek Joshi of Frisco (right), each earned a $2,000 prize.
Kim's research was conducted to better understand nanoparticle cancer treatments.
Vicas worked to develop nano-sized sensors that will increase clarity in single-molecule imaging technology. These sensors may help researchers find ways to image and detect diseases on an incredibly small scale.
Joshi created an algorithm that uses different statistics to predict which set of numbers will produce the best neural network for use in artificial intelligence.
