Brittany Wenger is a 18-year-old high school senior from Lakewood Ranch, Florida. But she is not your typical and average high-school kid. She single-handedly combined her passion for computer science and biology to create a unique cloud-based app that is able to diagnose cancer and leukemia in patients in every hospital in the world.
Since she was in the 7th grade the witty teen was fascinated with artificial neural networks and started learning how to write computer code. She basically taught the computer how to diagnose a variety of cancers easier, more accurately and less painfully for patients. The “Cloud4Cancer” service she created is accessible from every hospital in the wold and it’s a sophisticated diagnostic tool. She drew inspiration for her research after her cousin was diagnosed with cancer. This traumatic personal event enabled Wenger to revolutionize the way medicine works.
For her incredible achievements in science Brittany Wenger won the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix last year as well as Google’s CS Connect award and many others. The teen plans to become a pediatric oncologist in the future and will pursue her university diploma at Duke.
