And the Winner is…

National Review Board selected for flight:

Urokinase Protein Crystal Growth in Microgravity

Co-Principal Investigators: Celeste Brown and Josie Smith
, Jackson Middle School, Grade 7
Teacher Facilitator: Jennifer Kelley

Proposal Summary:
We want to grow urokinase protein crystals for researchers to find out more about treatments for cancers. We are interested in this because we have had relatives die of cancer. Also, a friend of ours named Brittany, who is our age, is dying of brain cancer and only has a few more months to live. It is our hope that something new will be learned from our experiment to help others suffering from cancer.

Congratulations, Celeste and Josie!
