Grade 12 students Ben Nashman from Upper Canada College and Sunrose Billing at University of Toronto Schools are exploring how to use MRIs in a new way. They hope it will someday be able to test what is in someone’s blood, such as glucose, cholesterol or drugs, without puncturing the skin to sample the vital fluid.
The 17-year-olds immersed themselves in understanding MRI technology as participants in The Knowledge Society (TKS), an after-school incubator program co-founded by Navid and Nadeem Nathoo to help students explore innovation. The tech entrepreneurs’ mission is to inspire and develop the next generation of leaders and connect young people with leading experts to solve key problems in the world.”
