Hampton Bays High School sophomore Jared Strecker successfully presented his research on mesothelioma at the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation’s annual International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma on March 27 and 28 in Maryland.

During the symposium, the Science Research student met with top researchers in the field, including Dr. Harvey Pass. He also shared his research, which focuses on therapies and treatments of mesothelioma and biomarkers found in plasma samples that could lead to earlier detection of mesothelioma.

Strecker has selected the research project with the assistance of science research teacher Dr. Stephanie Forsberg and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Denise Sullivan during his freshman year.
