tect epigenetic markers of colon cancer in urine through PCR-based assays," said Dr. Igor Levchenko, Senior Research Scientist, Department of Biology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. "The team's research is a first step in developing a non-invasive screening test for colorectal cancer, which is essential for early detection and better treatment outcomes. Mr. Song and Mr. Chen were extremely knowledgeable, and their project was well-designed and intelligent."

As a junior, Mr. Song is currently a member of the National Honor Society, the Academic Decathlon, the Tri-M Music Honor Society, and Treasurer of his school's Science Fair Club. Additionally, Mr. Song and his team placed first in this year's International Science and Engineering Fair. Aside from his academic pursuits, Mr. Song is an accomplished piano player, having recently placed third in the World Piano Competition. He was also selected as a Regional Finalist at the 2008 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology.

Mr. Chen is a National Merit Semifinalist, President of the National Honor Society and Member of the Student Council. He also participates in his school's Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Teams, as well as the Cross Country Team. Mr. Chen is a member of Kids Against Crisis, a school organization that works to spread the word about international and local crises.

The team's mentor was Dr. Ying-Hsiu Su, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
