Sanofi Group Selects Partners In Research To Lead SBCC

The Sanofi Group in Canada has selected Partners In Research as the new national coordinator for the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada (SBCC). Partners In Research (PIR) helps Canadians understand the significance, accomplishments and promise of biomedical research in advancing health and medicine, with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as fields of discovery and study for Canadian students.

“Thanks to the collaboration between industry, government and academia, thousands of high school students have participated in the SBCC over the past 20 years. In fact, it has inspired many of them to make life-changing research discoveries and choose careers in the life sciences, which speaks to the impact and value of this program,” said Mark Lievonen, President, Sanofi Pasteur Limited, which helped establish the competition in 1993. “We are thrilled to have Partners In Research at our side to grow the SBCC in the years ahead. Their extensive experience working with educational institutions to advance science will help us deepen Canada’s talent pool, ultimately accelerating our country’s innovation, competitiveness and productivity.”
