Presently, Stephen's research crossed into the human realm in a university BSL-2 laboratory and proved that EGCG causes human Breast and Cervical cancer cells to cease functioning while normal breast cells remained unaffected. He earned a first place award and earned a coveted spot as a finalist at the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair to be held in Phoenix, Arizona on May 12-17, 2019. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (the Society), is the world's largest international pre-college science competition.
Each year, approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories are awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for on average $4 million in prizes.
In May, Stephen will represent Kennesaw Mountain High School and the Cobb County School District at the ISEF competition.
