Statement from the Society for Science

During the 2024 Regeneron ISEF competition, Krish Pai, 17, was announced as one of this year’s $50,000 Young Scientist Award winners. Soon thereafter, the Society for Science received allegations regarding the scientific integrity of Mr. Pai’s research project. Per the Society’s defined process, a thorough investigation was immediately conducted. The Society presented its findings and additional questions to Mr. Pai, who then opted to withdraw his project and decline the awards.

Because no runner up was determined during the onsite judging process, this award will not be reassigned.
