Back in 2022 the BSID launched the BSID Undergraduate Research Experience initiative offering one BSc undergraduate student interested in skin research the possibility to spend 6 weeks in the laboratory of a BSID member to carry out a skin focused project. For the second iteration there were 6 projects offered by BSID members, spanning from inflammatory skin disease to genetics to cancer and 3 BSc students applied from all over the UK, undergoing a competitive selection process overseen by the BSID Committee.

At the BSID meeting 2024 in Southampton Kolsuma Rahman, a 2nd year Biomedical Science BSc student from Anglia Ruskin University, was announced as the 2024 awardee of the BSID Undergraduate Research Experience scholarship to carry out a project this Summer on “Signalling pathways in Atopic Eczema in the local Bangladeshi population” under the supervision of Dr.Ryan O’Shaughnessy at Queen Mary University of London.

Best of luck to Kolsuma for her first taste of skin research!

The next call will open later this  Summer for the placement to take place in Summer 2025.
