Shantou University College of Science Summer School (STUCSSS) is organized by the College of Science, Shantou University, which is to be held in Shantou from 3rd-12thAugust 2015.

The STUCSSS series aims to provide participants the fundamental concepts, latest development and current update on the rapidly growing fields of Biology and Chemistry. The Summer School is useful for undergraduate students majored in Science subject. Limited quota is available for postgraduate students who are working on these research areas.

The theme of STUCSSS is on “Advanced Biology and Chemistry”. We continue our mission to provide high quality, interactive teaching and learning experiences (including lectures, student presentation and open scientific forum) to our participants. The Summer School acts as a platform to nurture young scientists via direct interaction and discussion with world-renowned lecturers in the fields. It also provides participants a valuable opportunity for career advancement, personal enrichment and know more about Biology and Chemistry.

We look forward to seeing you in Shantou in August 2015.
