Kamisi Adetunji, Regeneron STS Finalist 2023

Regeneron STS validated my place in research and science as a whole and allowed me to realize that I have potential and a future in the field. Although I had an idea of what I wanted my future career to be, STS, and Finals Week in particular, allowed me to see that my path does not have to be linear. It boosted my passion for science and intensified my curious mindset. I am incredibly grateful for Regeneron STS!

Regeneron STS is life-changing. There is no better program, and there are no better people to do it with. The people are the real prize. Showing that your humanity is as strong as your research is the key to success in STS.

I believe students should apply to STS because STS is such a great opportunity to showcase your scientific research and meet like-minded, passionate students who love science!

2022 STS Finalist Atreyus Bhavsar

Atreyus Bhavsar, Regeneron STS Finalist 2022

Students should apply to the Regeneron STS because it is an amazing opportunity to build community with some of the hardest-working student scientists. I encourage those to apply to the Regeneron STS while keeping in mind that you do not need to be the smartest in the room to apply, but instead the dedicated and passionate about science.

2022 STS Finalist Heloise Hoffmann

Heloise Hoffman, Regeneron STS Finalist 2022

“Not only did I gain incredible connections to cutting-edge researchers and the opportunity to meet with some of the most impactful scientists of our time, but I also made lifelong friendships with other like-minded students passionate about their work. Though STS is at its core a competition, nothing about our camaraderie felt competitive because we all felt so motivated by each other’s accomplishments and passions! I feel a renewed invigoration to follow my love for research to make a positive impact on the world, specifically in the curing of rare diseases.”
