Regeneron STS 2017 Finalists

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Society for Science & the Public on January 24 recognized 40 finalists in the Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. Finalists were selected based on the scientific rigor and world-changing potential of their research projects.

This year, Regeneron becomes only the third sponsor of the Science Talent Search, with a 10-year, $100 million commitment.  Regeneron is a company founded with the goal of transforming lives through science and its most important and social commitment has been to support the development of highly engaged, well-training and innovative young thinkers.

The finalists will now go to Washington, D.C. from March 9-15 to undergo a rigorous judging process to determine the top 10 winners. They will also have the opportunity to meet with national leaders and share their projects with the public at the National Geographic Society.
