Are you a BioGENEius?


Each year, the Colorado BioScience Institute participates in the BioGENEius challenge. The BioGENEius Challenges are your opportunity to compete on an international stage with some of the brightest scientific minds in the world.


Imagine discovering a cure to a rare disease, optimizing crop production to provide millions more with affordable food, or even culturing new algae to break down water contaminants. We challenge you to explore projects in any of the above, and more, and present your work to industry innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape.

Are you ready to collaborate with the best minds in biotechnology, and shape the future of the industry? Then yes, you are a BioGENEius.

Process and Participation

The Colorado BioScience Institute, through a panel of Colorado life sciences professionals judges, selects one student from the Colorado State Science Fair hosted at the Colorado State University to advance to the BioGENEius competition.

The Colorado State Science Fair, Inc. provides opportunities for students to present their research in environments that nurture interest in science and technology annually in Fort Collins. CSSF promotes professional skills, high ethical standards, diversity, and continuing intellectual development.
