Eva Vertes – 21, and Looking for a Cure For Cancer

Eva Vertes, is a ‘microbiology prodigy’. She gave a talk in 2006 when she was 19 about her passion for medicine and what led her to make, at the age of 17, the discovery of a compound that stops the cell death in the brain of a fruit-fly, which was considered to be the first step on the road to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s. Now she’s looking for a cure for cancer.

Watch her talk about her work with cancer stem cells:
