Meet 17-year-old Kirtana Vallabhaneni, who was just named the UK's "Top Young Scientist of the Year."
According to BBC, Kirtana was awarded the title for her research in identifying harmful cells that potentially cause pancreatic cancer, beating out three other young women at Birmingham's Big Bang Fair, which is is open to 11-18 year-olds who have completed science, technology, engineering, or math projects.
