The Matt Wilson Scholarship
Matthew (“Matt”) Wilson studied at King’s College London and obtained an MSc in “Biomedical and Molecular Sciences Research” in October 2011. He graduated with Distinction, ranked 2nd of 33 students, notably whilst undergoing treatment for cancer throughout his studies. The picture on the right shows Matt at his graduation.
In memory of Matt’s exemplary contributions, we initially set up the Matt Wilson Prize, awarded annually to the “best overall performing” Biomedical and Molecular Sciences Research MSc student.
In addition, and thanks to a generous donation from Matt’s family, we were able to establish a scholarship scheme in 2018 to enhance one Biomedical and Molecular Sciences Research project. Valued at up to £5000 per annum, the award provides added-value to a research project by enabling costly experiments to be performed that otherwise would not be possible. The scholarship is a wonderful way to ensure that Matt’s legacy lives on!
