Gurdon Summer Studentship reports
The Gurdon summer studentship scheme provides financial support to allow highly motivated undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in practical research during their summer vacation. We look for students with a strong academic record and clear career vision, who have taken the initiative to establish contacts with a research laboratory where they can perform projects in the area of Developmental Biology. Every year, 10 successful applicants spend 8 weeks in the research laboratories of their choices, and the feedback we received was outstanding.
