Two second year undergraduate students will be spending their summer working on projects related to plant pathology
Carla Finn and Minty Gray will be spending their summer working on projects related to plant pathology at East Malling Research. Both were successful in obtaining funding from the British Society for Plant Pathology (BSPP) through their undergraduate vacation bursary scheme. They will join existing research groups and receive expert supervision and training while working towards their specific research objectives.
Dr Andrew Lawrence (summer placement coordinator) said:
“Summer vacation studentships provide an excellent opportunity for undergraduates who are considering a research career to gain valuable practical experience in a research laboratory. Projects typically last between 8 and 10 weeks during which time the students become fully integrated within a research group. This allows the students to really apply what they have learnt in a research setting and is great preparation for their final year projects.”
We look forward to hearing about their research projects when they return in September.
