US National BioGENEius Challenge

Are you a best-in-the-nation BioGENEius?

After thousands of applications are submitted and judged by our partner judges, scientists, researchers and industry-niche experts, students will advance from their Local and At-Large BioGENEius Challenges to compete in the national spotlight at the U.S. National BioGENEius Challenge.

Conducted in conjunction with the prestigious BIO International Convention, students will present their winning projects in some of the same rooms where industry-leaders are presenting their “next-big-thing” innovations and advances in biotechnology.
