Every summer since 1994 Smith students have conducted plant research at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England. Students intern alongside Kew scientists on projects in molecular biology, conservation genetics, or bioinformatics. (See below for a project example). Student interns have the opportunity to be co-authors on scientific publications resulting from their research. This internship runs 12-weeks. For the summer of 2024, three students will be selected to take part.
Funding for this internship experience comes from a generous endowment established in honor of Muriel Kohn Pokross class of 1934.
