At 15, Samarth has become immersed in the realm of nanotechnology. He's worked with a Toronto-based nanotech company and has built up his expertise in this industry by simulating various nano particles, nano materials and even self assembling structures on the nano scale which are all targeted towards addressing major roadblocks in preventive medicine today. Some of his projects include: self assembling proteins to cure most diseases, self assembling fullerenes for drug delivery, and silicon nitride nano-materials to sequence DNA 10x more effectively than current methods.
