Owen Hornung, a sixth grade student on Team Supernova at West Middle School, is the third place winner in the 5th – 8th grade category of the Celebrate the Mouse Biomedical Research Video Essay Contest.

The contest, sponsored by the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, encouraged students to share their knowledge about how mice have helped advance major medical discoveries. Students created original video essays explaining how they, a family member, friend, or pet have benefited from medical discoveries made possible thanks to work conducted with mice in biomedical research.

In his video essay, Owen describes how mice are used in research to perfect procedures and drug therapies for cancer treatment. To view Owen’s essay, please visit https://bit.ly/2AkqDvF and click on Entry #0010.
