Senomyx Hopes to Enhance Young Minds – LSSI Summer Student Program
Senomyx was excited to host students from the Life Science Summer Institute (LSSI) program and have the chance to tell them about our Company. Our goal for this event was to spark interest in the life sciences and encourage students to further their education to achieve their goals.
The LSSI program was created to help students and teachers gain exposure to the life sciences industry through internships and externships. LSSI focuses on high school students in particular, especially those from groups who are underrepresented in science. With partners like BIOCOM, Miramar College and various local research institutions, LSSI helps students in the San Diego area increase their awareness of the life sciences industry and related fields of research.
As part of the LSSI-Exposure program, Senomyx presented information about our technology, business model, and the education necessary to excel in the life sciences industry, to high school students from all over San Diego County. The students were very eager to learn and we hope that we “whet their appetite” to explore the field of taste science. Many commented on how the presentation showed an entirely different side of life science than they were used to:
“Thank you for your presentation, which opened my eyes to the world of flavor!”

It is always a pleasure to have the opportunity to host bright young students and pique their interest in science!
