For over two decades, the Sanofi Biogenius Canada (SBC) program has nurtured young minds and fostered great talent for the future by challenging high school students to carry out groundbreaking research projects in the field of biotechnology.

Those selected for the SBC work with local mentors, giving students hands-on research experience in a professional lab setting. Participants compile their results and present their findings at regional competitions. Cash prizes are awarded and regional winners advance to the National stage, where they vie for the top spot and the chance to compete in the International BioGENEius Challenge, held at the prestigious BIO International Convention – the largest biotechnology event in the world.

In past years, participants’ elite research projects have ranged in topic, from AIDS, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, to agriculture and environmental sustainability. Many have since been patented and commercialized, garnering international media attention and igniting a true culture of innovation in Canada.

The SBC Manitoba Regional competition is a one-day event where up to 24 elite high school students present their biotechnology research project to a panel of industry judges. This is followed by an evening award reception and presentation.
