try at the SBCC each year, I am increasingly optimistic about Canada's opportunity to truly make a difference in the world."

Now in its 19th year, the SBCC gives young scientists access to university labs and academic mentors, encouraging the pursuit of future studies and careers in the country's fast-growing biotechnology sector. This year, more than 240 high school and CEGEP students across Canada submitted192 projects that ranged from exploring potential new drug treatments for Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and cancer to using mold fungi as an alternative to traditional pesticides.

Each of the students worked for months conducting research and collaborating with university mentors.

The nine national finalists presented their projects at NRC headquarters Monday May 7 to a panel of eminent Canadian scientists:

Dr. Luis Barreto (Chief Judge), Senior Advisor, Vaccine Program, Human Health and Therapeutics, National Research Council Canada, and ex-Vice President, Immunization and Science Policy, Sanofi Pasteur Limited;

Dr. Jim Richards, Director General, Vaccine Program, Human Health and Therapeutics, National Research Council Canada;

Dr. Alain Beaudet, President, Canadian Institutes of Health Research;

Dr. Ron Pearlman, Associate Scientific Director, The Gairdner Foundation;

Dr. John Kelly, Vice-President, Erie Innovation and Commercialization, Ontario Fruit & Vegetable Growers' Association; and

Dr. Alison Symington, Vice President, Outreach, Ontario Genomics Institute.

Also on the judging panel was Marshall Zhang, 18, of Richmond Hill Collegiate, national first-place winner of the SBCC in 2011.

"Every young person that gets to this level of competition is a winner and I congratulate them equally," said chief judge Luis Barreto. "Credit goes to all the students and mentors from coast to coast who took part in this year's event. There is great talent a
