WCI Student Wins Top Prize at National Biotechnology Competition

May 8, 2012

MP Peter Braid met with 16-year-old Waterloo Collegiate Institute (WCI) student Janelle Tam, winner of the 2012 Sanofi BioGENEius Canada biotechnology research competition in Ottawa.

MP Braid congratulates Janelle on taking first prize in this prestigious national competition with her ground-breaking research on nanocrystalline cellulose. This disease-fighting, anti-aging compound has enormous potential in applications such as health creams and medications.

“It’s a pleasure to meet such a bright young scientist,” MP Braid said. “I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of Janelle’s achievements, and I’ll be rooting for her during the International Finals in June!”
