    A 15-year-old student is a finalist in the Google Science Fair due to his brilliant work fighting dementia. Krtin Nithiyanandam of Epsom, Surrey, England has developed an antibody that can cross the blood-brain barrier, attach to toxic proteins in the brain and even potentially stop them from further development.

    I'm trying to think about my achievements when I was 15. :/

    wow
    The first thing I remember from when I was 15, is them letting us out of school due to the Kennedy assassination.
    Then I got a learners permit and ditched school to go to a museum in Chicago-----wherein I rounded a corner and walked right into one of the h.s. teachers--------(busted)

    I'd a md friend who was working on crossing the blood-brain barrier for years in an effort to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

    Good News!
