Institute PhD student appointed as American Society of Microbiology Young Ambassador and University of London International Programmes Chapter Leader
5 July 2013
Mrs Enas Newire, a PhD student in Microbial Diseases who is sponsored by the Schlumberger Foundation’s Faculty of the Future Programme, has recently been chosen to represent two important institutions internationally.
American Society for Microbiology
The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has appointed Mrs Newire for a one-year term as the Young Ambassador to Egypt. She was selected for the role through a highly competitive process and will spend the next year representing ASM in Egypt, building connections and encouraging collaboration between early career scientists and her peers around the world.
The 2013 cohort of Young Ambassadors have just returned to their home countries from a two week retreat in Washington, DC and the ASM General Meeting in Denver, Colorado, prepared to “mobilize the next generation of scientists to develop innovative approaches to meet the Grand Challenges in Science.”
University of London
Mrs Newire was recently appointed by University of London International Programmes as the Chapter Leader to Egypt for all current students and alumni. Her appointment was a natural choice as she is currently a University of London International Programmes Ambassador, and has been made for the next two years to build connections with her colleagues living in Egypt.
Her colleagues at the Institute wish Enas success in these new endeavours.
