    Ruoyi Jiang

    Having already won a $100,000 grand prize in a national science contest, a Long Island high school senior was named a finalist in the Intel Science Talent Search yesterday.

    Ruoyi Jiang, of East Setauket, Long Island is one of 40 nationwide finalists who will compete for a $100,000 scholarship in March in Washington, D.C.

    Last month, Jiang won for his project about patients' resistance to chemotherapy pharamcuetics at the Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology.

    Jiang, 17, will ring today's closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange alongside three other Siemens contest winners, The College Board executives, and Siemens Foundation officials.
