The Biotechnology Institute International Sponsorship

The Biotechnology Institute engages students outside the U.S. to compete in the International BioGENEius program, a combination of U.S and foreign student finalists judged on-site at the BIO International Conference each year.  In past years, students from Australia and Canada have participated.  This year, in addition to Canada, we will welcome students from Germany. 

The International Program is possible through the generous and longstanding support of Sanofi Pasteur.
