Congrats to these students from City Honors School Science Research Program at Roswell Park who have been busy attending science fairs, including the Ying Tri Region Science and Engineering Fair (TRSEF) in Syracuse, NY. Roswell Park and Yroswell are proud of their accomplishments and excited to see what the future brings for these bright young minds!

Sydney Johnson, 11th Grade
 
Accolades: Ying TRSEF Highest Honors, Erie County Science Champions, Selected to attend Genius Olympiad in Oswego, NY
Department: Cell Stress Biology
Area Of Study: Creating new treatments that can specifically target components of cancerous cell signaling pathways. 
"I enjoy participating in these fairs because it gives me and my partner an opportunity to showcase the significance and real world applications of our research. It also gives us an opportunity to encourage other kids to stick with STEM because you never know where and how far your interests can take you."

Hakeem Salem, 11th Grade

Accolades: Ying TRSEF Highest Honors, Intel Computer Award, Selected to attend intel ISEF
