Christine Desty was a talented chemist, graduating from Essex with a BSc Biochemistry in 1975. Sadly, she passed away a few years later. Her mother Doreen, the wife of the late scientist and inventor Denis Desty, chose to pay tribute to her daughter by setting up a Scholarship fund in the School of Biological Sciences. The fund will create 10 MSD scholarships in the School, generating a next generation of talented Essex scientists.
The Christine Desty Scholarship is fully-funded (Home/EU fees £4630 plus stipend of £15,009) for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD) in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
