“The first months' mentorship for me with [my mentor] has been invaluable. She is truly amazing and has provided so much support and help, as often as I have needed it, which has been every 2 weeks pretty much, if not more. I could not have wished for a better mentor! Thank you again for this match, I feel very privileged to have been connected.”

Stephanie Lesage, Co-Founder and CEO, Oxford Silk Phage Technologies
