Bessie Lawrence 2017 ISSI students head to Weizmann

Alex Sized For Web

We have waved off this year's ISSI students at the airport. Nine students were selected to spend a month taking part in the Dr Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute.  They will spend a month working as part of a research team alongside leading scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

They will also spend time exploring the campus at Rehovot and travelling in Israel with like minded friends from around the world.

Thanks to our generous supporters, each year Weizmann UK offers scholarship funded places for UK students to participate in the ISSI programme. 

Look out for guest blogs over the summer to find out how this year's participants get on.
