Most teenagers are trying to decide which college to attend. Joe Landolina was innovating a medical breakthrough that could save countless lives.

Developed when he was only seventeen, Landolina invented "Vetigel," an "algae-based" substance, that when applied to an wound can stop blood loss almost immediately.

Landolina told Business Insider the gel works within "in less than 12 seconds," and can start the healing process for a wound "within minutes."

Watch the video below to see how this incredible medical innovation works.
