Matthew Klein and Cameron Levy, both of Kennedy High School, have been recognized as 2018 Regeneron Science Talent Search Scholars on Jan. 9.

They are two of 300 students acknowledged from across the nation and two of 46 from Long Island.  
Klein’s research, “Galaxy Cluster Assembly and Ignition of Active Galactic Nuclei,” was completed at SUNY Farmingdale. 

Levy’s research, “An Analysis of the Interactions Among the Histone Deacetylase Sir2, TOR Signaling, and the Heat Shock Response Instigator Heat Shock Factor 1,” was completed at Long Island University, CW POST.

They are both seniors in Barbi Frank’s Advanced Science Research class, a three-year program, at Kennedy High School. 

The Regeneron STS is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Each scholar, selected from 1,818 entrants, receives a $2,000 award with an additional $2,000 going to his or her respective school. The 40 finalists chosen to compete in Washington, D.C. in March will be announced on Jan. 23.
