Ambika Grover Of Greenwich, Conn Places 6th In The 2023 Regeneron Science Talent Search

Press Release

Ambika Grover of Greenwich, Conn places 6th in the 2023 Regeneron Science Talent Search

Ambika Grover, 17, of Greenwich, Conn., received an $80,000 award for developing an injectable layered microbubble designed to target and break up blood clots and prevent them from reforming. She believes this can be used to restore the flow of oxygen-carrying blood to the brains of ischemic stroke victims.  

At Greenwich High School, Grover is president of the Girls Who Code Club, the economics club and the debate team and is one of 12 debaters selected from 140,000 to compete internationally with the USA Debate Team. The daughter of Jyoti and Rahul Grover, she also plays the viola in a string quartet.

Grover, who sees herself one day conducting cardiovascular disease research, has applied for a patent for her microbubble. She already has a provisional patent for research using nitric oxide in exhaled breath as a marker for exposure to pollution.

Grover hopes to minor in economics in college and enjoys exploring the intersectionality of economics and related fields such as technology. 

Neel Moudgal, 17, of Saline, Michigan, won the top $250,000 award in the 2023 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors.
Moudgal won for creating a computer model that can rapidly and reliably predict the structure of RNA molecules using only easily accessible data. He believes this will make it easier to diagnose and treat certain diseases.

Siddhu Pachipala, 18, of The Woodlands, Texas, placed 9th and received a $50,000 award for using machine learning to analyze journal entries as a way to gauge patients’ suicide risk. His work suggests that the semantics in an individual’s writing could be correlated with their psychological health and risk of suicide.    

The Regeneron Science Talent Search empowers young people who are passionate about innovation and using scientific discovery to contribute to improving our world. By providing a national stage to present new ideas and challenge old ways of thinking, the competition encourages and rewards a culture of idea sharing, critical thinking and continuous improvement. It also serves as a catalyst for discovering sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. The judging panel considers how these research efforts, innovative thinking and leadership qualities demonstrate the students’ potential to become future leaders in critical STEM fields. 
The Regeneron Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science since 1942, is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. Each year, nearly 2,000 student entrants submit original research in critically important scientific fields of study and are judged by leading experts in their fields. Unique among high school competitions in the U.S. and around the world, the Regeneron Science Talent Search focuses on identifying, inspiring and engaging the nation’s most promising young scientists who are creating the ideas that could solve society’s most urgent challenges. 

In 2017, Regeneron became the third sponsor of the Science Talent Search to help reward and celebrate the best and brightest young minds and encourage them to pursue careers in STEM as a way to positively impact the world. Through its 10-year, $100 million commitment, Regeneron nearly doubled the overall award distribution to $3.1 million annually, increasing the top award to $250,000 and doubling the awards for the top 300 scholars to $2,000 and their schools to $2,000 for each enrolled scholar to inspire more young people to engage in science.
