Sean Stephenson

The 3 Foot Giant

Dr. Stephenson was predicted not to survive at birth because of a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile.

Despite his challenges, he took a stand for a quality of life that has inspired millions of people around the world including Sir Richard Branson, President Clinton, and his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Dr. Stephenson appeared on everything from Oprah to Jimmy Kimmel, in addition to online videos with millions of views. The Biography Channel did an hour-long feature on his life called “Three Foot Giant.”

Dr. Stephenson's message was heard at live events in over 15 countries and 47 states over 21 years. His book, Get Off Your “But.” was released in ten different languages around the world.

In 2019, at the age of 40, Dr. Stephenson passed away after a serious concussion. His last words were "This didn't happen to me, but for me."

Laura Dominguez-Tauer

Stem Cell Patient
Co-founder, Beyond the Chair

After an auto accident when she was 16 yrs. old that paralyzed her from the neck down, Laura received her own adult stem cells transplanted into her spine. She can now feel down to her toes, has regained some movement in her legs, and has the ability to stand and stay standing with a walker with little help. She can even contract her quadriceps and hamstring muscles when standing. She is determined to walk again. Her amazing story of perseverance, focus and medical science will inspire and ignite the imagination of anyone interested in the future of stem cell research.

Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.

Author, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist who experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain in 1996. On the afternoon of this rare form of stroke (AVM), she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. It took eight years for Dr. Jill to completely recover all of her functions and thinking ability. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey.

Isha Jain & Raina Jain

Grand Prize Winner, 2007 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology
Winner, 2010 Sanofi International BioGENeius Challenge

Isha performed her first experiment in the fourth grade, testing candy to figure out why some is chewy and some is hard. Since then, her accomplishments have only gotten sweeter: At 16 she won $100,000 for her research on bone growth in zebrafish, she co-authored six published scientific papers, and she helped direct Harvard’s National Symposium for the Advancement of Women in Science. “If only a small percentage of women are involved in science, we’re slowing the rate at which we’ll make new discoveries,” she says.

Raina became the youngest high-school student in the world to win an award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in 2008, just days after her 14th birthday. The Intel ISEF is the crown jewel of science competitions around the world. Raina’s study of how glass implants can help bones regenerate their cells earned her a fourth-place award in the Biosciences and Engineering category.

Paige Brown

First Place Medal of Distinction in Global Good
2016 Intel Science Talent Search

Paige Brown is the first place medal of distinction winner in global good of the 2016 Intel Science Talent Search, for her research studying the water quality of six environmentally impaired local streams with high E. coli and phosphate contamination levels. She is currently developing a cost-effective filter largely made of calcium alginate strands to remove the phosphate from stormwater systems.

Paige is currently studying chemical engineering at Stanford University.

Janelle Tam

Winner, 2012 Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada

At 17-years-old, Janelle Tam has discovered that cellulose, a material found in trees that helps them stand up straight, is an antioxidant with potent anti-aging properties. Janelle’s study of minute particles in tree pulp known as nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) led to an “a-ha”! moment for the young innovator — she had unearthed a super-durable material that had the power to fight disease and prevent aging. This unbelievable discovery won Janelle the 2012 Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada, a national competition for young scientists.

Janelle is a recent graduate from Princeton University.

Olivia Hallisey

Olivia Hallisey

Grand Prize Winner, 2015 Google Science Fair

Olivia Hallisey developed a novel diagnostic Ebola test, the “Ebola Assay Card” (EAC). She determined early diagnosis was critical to arresting the epidemic’s exponential growth. The EAC is inexpensive, rapid, and visual, indicating results through a color change, eliminating language barriers, and increasing ease of use. Most recently, she has developed the “Lyme Assay Card” (LAC) for saliva-based early diagnosis of Lyme disease. She is continuing research on this assay as a broad disease diagnostic with applicability for other ELISA assay-based diseases.

She is currently studying at Stanford University.

Jack Andraka

Grand Prize Winner, 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
Breakthrough Inventor, Scientist, and Cancer Researcher

When Jack was 15-years-old he created a new diagnostic test for pancreatic cancer that is 28 times faster, 26,000 times less expensive and over 100 times more sensitive than the current diagnostic tests. And, in case that’s not impressive enough, the test also works for ovarian and lung cancer.

His diagnostic test earned him first prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the world’s largest pre-college science research competition.

Jack is currently studying at Stanford University.
