Biology Students WINS Provincial Sanofi BioGenius Competition

First year Vanier Science student Jeremy Levett was awarded first place at the Sanofi Biogenius Canada Regional Competition Awards Ceremony, at Sanofi Canada, on April 20th. His work aimed to characterize the biochemical mechanisms through which protein GCN2 regulates pulmonary veno-occlusive disease, which is a devastating and rapidly progressing condition resulting from the constriction of pulmonary veins.



As a results of his win, Jeremy had the honour of representing the province of Québec on the SBC National competition, which took place in Ottawa between May 8 and 11th. While he didn’t win this competition, the overall experience was of tremendous value, and Jeremy looks to continue his research over the summer.

Congratulations Jeremy!
