“What I am doing is taking prostate cancer and making it chemotherapy-resistant,” he said. "Then I’m using a treatment we've developed to kill the cancer to prove that our treatment has the ability to kill cancer even if it's chemotherapy-resistant."

The students' projects were judged on how well they were presented.

Students received critiques and help to build their resumes.
