Meet Mythri. Mythri’s invention seeks to address the root cause of many life-threatening diseases, like cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Her passion for science, research, and computational biochemistry fueled her desire to enter the Young Scientist Challenge. Mythri loves reading books, both fiction and nonfiction, on her Kindle.
Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I am extremely passionate about science and science research. I am entering the Young Scientist Challenge with the hope of an opportunity to learn from the best and the brightest 3M scientists.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
My favorite invention is eReader. This is because reading is my hobby and my Kindle has allowed me easy access to all kinds of books. I am able to read a lot more books, fiction as well as non-fiction, because of eReaders.
In 15 years I hope to be...
Computational biochemistry proposes using computer software to create models of human organs and systems. Computer code could be used to simulate all the possible variables within a human body. This would remove the dependency on live test subjects and significantly accelerate the process of research and drug trials. In 15 years, I hope to be a computational bio-scientist.
