The Gatsby Plant Science Summer School 2017

The 2017 Gatsby Plant Science Summer School will take place at The Hawkhills conference centre in Easingwold, north of York, between Sunday 25 - Friday 30 June 2017.

The summer school is a unique opportunity for first year (or second year in Scotland) students studying at the below universities, to discover the challenge and opportunities of studying plant science, through talks from leading scientists, careers sessions, eye-opening practicals and thought-provoking discussions with researchers and peers.

The Gatsby Plant Science Summer School was established by the University of Leeds in 2005 and is now part of the Gatsby Plant Science Education Programme at the University of Cambridge. The academic coordinator for the school is Dr Celia Knight and the project coordinator is Claire Pennycuick.
