WISE is dedicated to supporting the graduate program on the Jupiter, Florida campus.

Join us for our second event, the WISE Symposium, on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 that is aligned with the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Attendees will enjoy breakfast and lunch in addition to hearing from inspiring researchers and graduate students dedicated to advancing science and improving human health. Special appearance by Actress and author Tina Sloan, best known for her portrayal of nurse Lillian Raines on the CBS daytime drama “The Guiding Light.” Please see details below to register.

"The graduate program at Scripps Research is a magnet for young scientific talent,” says Christoph Rader, PhD, associate dean of the program. “It’s highly competitive—only 22 percent of more than 800 annual applicants are admitted—and highly popular, partly because the students know they’ll be working in our labs alongside our renowned scientists from day one. When they emerge with their doctoral degrees, they’ll be equipped with the education and training to make a positive impact on human health. By launching WISE, we aim to endow a female graduate student fellowship here on the Jupiter campus.
