For over 25 years, Sanofi Biogenius Canada (SBC) has nurtured young minds and fostered great scientific talent. We’re challenging students to carry out groundbreaking research projects in life sciences… and we want you to be a part of it.
A true science experience
No ordinary science fair, SBC participants tackle university-level research topics – from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, to agriculture and the environment. Projects have the potential to be patented and commercialized, and participants build experience as scientists and innovators, all before graduating high school.
What makes SBC unique? Students are matched with expert mentors in the sciences, giving them hands-on research experience in a professional laboratory setting. It’s an invaluable opportunity to gain access to a network that extends far beyond the classroom, opening doors to future success. We’ve watched their ideas become launch pads to future studies, new innovations and careers, time and time again. No other youth science competition in Canada comes close to the SBC experience.
Be part of the challenge
With regional competitions in eight different cities across Canada – learn more about our footprint here – and with the National Finals in Toronto, there are many different ways to support SBC.
