ISEF Special Awards

American Society for Microbiology

Founded in 1899, the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is the largest single life science membership organization in the world. Members worldwide represent 26 disciplines of microbiological specializations plus a division for microbiology educators. The ASM's awards honor the most outstanding microbiology projects.

First Award of $2,500

Fondazione Bruno Kessler

The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) is a leading research center located in Trento, Italy. WebValley, started in 2001, is the FBK Summer School program for interdisciplinary scientific research. A team of enthusiastic and motivated high school students and FBK researchers accept a project challenge proposed by a scientist. This year’s project will study a new type of interface to big data and on-line spatial data analysis in 2D/3D cell environments. It is planned to extend the use of open source GIS and WebGIS solutions to micro/nano scales. The project shall enable the sharing between scientists of multi-scale studies, the overlay of cell models and real data, and user interaction based on Kinect and Android interfaces. FBKs Board of Directors will award Intel ISEF finalists full fellowships, including travel to Italy, to be part of the WebValley team from June 17- July 7, 2012.

CB021 Human Mutations Associated with Heart and Pancreatic Disease Cause

Adipogenesis Defects in Mice and in a Cell Culture Model

Edgar Ferrer-Lorenzo, 17, East Chapel Hill High School, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

 

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is the United States government agency responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. Founded in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research, answering basic questions like: What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there that will make life better here on Earth? NASA's notable achievements since its founding include developing leading edge flight technology, putting the first man on the moon, putting rovers on Mars, exploring deep space through the eyes of Hubble Space Telescope, launching a fleet of weather and communications satellites, flying the first reusable Space Shuttle to provide regular access to space, providing vital scientific climate research, and assembling an orbiting laboratory of the International Space Station. NASA's vision is to continue to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind, and they are excited to honor projects that have those same goals.

Third Award of $1,000
