Roy Ghosh

Founder and President
ScienceBuzz.com

Roy Ghosh is a senior at Parkland High School, PA. He founded ScienceBuzz because he believes that gifted middle and high school students lack the opportunities to showcase their talents in STEM subjects to the local and global scientific community. Although their work is impactful to society, they are not recognized due to the gap between science and popular culture. He created this academic networking platform to connect students to thousands of like-minded peers, scientists, and institutions. Studies show that 25% of gifted students become underachievers and quit their dreams because their efforts may not lead to any perceptible recognition.

For the past two summers and the period in between, Roy researched at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. His research on metastatic cancers and multidrug resistance has been accepted for publication in three journals - Cytoskeleton, Journal of Computational Biology and Cell Press. More specifically his research involved microtubular structure in platelets, tubulin isotype mapping and regulation of mitochondrial permeability. Prior to that, he researched at Lehigh University on tumor cells separation using a microfluidic device and drug delivery using TRAIL presenting liposomes. He has received numerous National and International Awards in STEM-related activities.
