A frequent science fair award winner and science advocate, Tasnia Nabil has placed at the Canada Wide Science Fair, Sanofi Biogenius Competition, International BioGENEius Challenge and in various Science Olympiads for her work on cancer therapies.
The Grade 12 student is known for what could be a groundbreaking method of removing cancer cells with little-to-no side effects. By injecting nanoparticles into the body and having them oscillate at high speeds with magnets, they heat up to a temperature that kills the cancer cells while healthy cells remain unharmed.
She enters this competition with a novel computational tool to thoroughly analyze the parameters required by a simulation software, with a simulation model, to test her treatment. The simulations can provide an optimal treatment plan that can be used for physicians to follow as a sustainable cancer treatment in routine clinical applications.
