Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Congressman Thomas Suozzi congratulated over two dozen local students in a virtual reception for Regeneron scholars. Students who ranked among the top 300 applicants in the Regeneron Science Talent Search science competition were named scholars and awarded, along with their high schools, $2,000.

New York’s 3rd district U.S. Representative Thomas Suozzi and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) hosted a virtual reception to recognize the 26 local high school students who were named 2021 Regeneron scholars. The Regeneron Science Talent Search, owned and produced by the Society for Science, is one of the nation’s most prestigious science and math competitions for high school students, and awards the top 300 scholars and their schools $2,000 each. One of CSHL’s Partners for the Future students, Vyom Shah from Jericho High School, was among those recognized. He studied the influence of dietary fatty acids on intestinal cancer in CSHL Fellow Semir Beyaz’s laboratory, and currently works in CSHL Fellow Hannah Meyer’s laboratory.

Congressman Suozzi applauded students for completing their science projects in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. “You’re the elites! You’re superstars! You’re brainiacs! And we’re very proud of you,” he announced.
