Her eighth-grade science project has lead a Scripps Ranch High School junior to the biotechnology labs at UC San Diego and a bright future as a researcher.

Watch the story of Janie Kim, who's found out not only which of the leading major brand-name contact lens solution is the best at killing bacteria, she and her mentor, Dr. Victor Nizet have looked at the individual components of contact lens solution and discovered a unique combination that leading experts say is five times better at killing bacteria than anything currently on the market.

The team recently published their findings in a scientific journal published by the American Society for Microbiology – an unusual accomplishment for a high school student.
