International BioGENEius Challenge

Will you be an International BioGENEius?

The challenges facing scientists in healthcare, food supply, clean industry and environment don’t recognize political borders. Luckily, neither do the biotechnology solutions currently being devised in schools, labs and corporate headquarters across the world.

We’re inviting high school or home schooled students from around the world to join and grow in the biotechnology industry; will this be your first step onto the world stage?

The International BioGENEius Challenge represents the highest level of our competition and the pinnacle of your achievement, when U.S. student finalists (All Local & At-Large winners) winners join winners from Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada and BioGENEius Challenge Germany to compete, with all the world watching.

The World Stage — This Year at BIO 2020 in San Deigo, CA

**Due to Covid-19, the BIO International Convention has been moved to a digital platform.  Details for the BioGENEius Challenge will be provided in the coming weeks.  The At-Large deadline has been extended to April 30th.**

High school and home schooled winners from the United States, Canada and Germany will compete in the International BioGENEius Challenges at the BIO International Convention in San Diego, CA, June 7-10, 2020.
