Fighting Cancer on Two Fronts

Video   Apr 24, 2019 | Taken from TEDx Talks, YouTube

 

Nia Clements is a cancer researcher who has found a potential treatment to multiple forms of cancer. What's more, is she did all of this before even graduating high school.

Cancer, in more ways than one, has played an influential role in her life. In this talk, she delves into her personal journey, which all started because of a rat named sniffles.

Nia Clements is a first-year student at Trinity University. By the ripe old age of 18, Nia has conducted pioneering cancer research with EISO (East Indian Sandalwood oil) through which she's discovered a potential treatment to stomach and throat cancer.

As a consequence of her research, she's competed in and won the International Science and Engineering fair, been featured on Smore magazine, and presented her work at the White House, where she spoke about her research with Vice President Biden, Bill Nye, and Adam Savage.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
