Congratulations to Pascack Hills Research in Molecular Genetics students Natalia Murillo, Jade Greenberg and Rebecca Volkov for being accepted into the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. Only 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories are awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for on average $4 million in prizes. 

Millions of students worldwide, including 9 million from the USA submit research proposals to Society-affiliated regional and state fairs.  Approximately 150,000 in the USA are selected to participate in these regional and state fair competitions, from which the best win the opportunity to attend Intel ISEF. The fact that Pascack Hills has three students selected is remarkable. 

Students in the Research in Molecular Genetics class have gone on to attend colleges such as Duke, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell and many other high caliber schools. Numerous alumni of the research program are currently performing research on cancer or Alzheimer’s at major institutions or have become medical doctors.  

Pascack Hills is proud of these students' accomplishments and would like to also recognize Dr. Martin Edelberg for his expert guidance with our Molecular Genetics program.
