Kira Fischer, Maastricht University, Netherlands

Although I am learning exciting facts about cancer at university, I was sad to leave Lausanne. Now I have a feeling that is similar to homesickness, because it was the best summer I have ever had. During this ten weeks I learned more than during two years of studying. Moreover, I made a lot of new extraordinary friends. I am very grateful for this unique experience. Thanks to you and Winship I felt comfortable immediately. Thanks also for taking care of everything. You make staying in Lausanne very easy and unproblematic. Whenever the CIG could need some assistance in the lab, please let me know. I would be glad to come back!


Courtney JnBaptiste, Bethune-Cookman University, USA

I really enjoyed the summer, thank you for all the efforts you put in to help make this experience possible. I hope that we can meet again either in St.Lucia or Switzerland!


Lieu Hai, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea

Again, I would like to thank you for your efforts to help us with a very great summer program. I hope to see you some day when I have chance to get back to Lausanne


Ruichen Sun, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China

It was a wonderful experience for me to be able to participate in the SUR Programme. I have learnt a lot of new things through the program and in Benton's lab. I am planning to come back to CIG in February in Benton's lab, staying 5 more weeks here. Thank you for your hospitality and help of everything.
