The Center for RNA Biomedicine RNA Student and Postdoc Council is delighted to launch the Research Scholar Exchange Program for postdocs and graduate students.
The goal of this newly developed program is to enhance RNA specific skills, mentorship and career development for University of Michigan trainees while fostering a highly collaborative environment with labs across the country. In this exchange program, trainees will spend a few weeks to up to a few months in a lab outside of the University of Michigan. The trainees will learn new techniques/skills, engage in lab meetings and discussions, and network with other trainees and faculty at the host institution. Upon return to their lab at the University of Michigan, the trainees will give a short seminar detailing their experience and the impact it has on their current and future projects.
