The Center for RNA Biomedicine and RNA Student and Postdoc Council is delighted to announce the implementation of the Research Scholar Exchange Program.
The RNA Council together with the Center for RNA Biomedicine is launching a research 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 trainees here at the University of Michigan. Successful collaboration can drive research to a new level and our goal is to foster a highly collaborative environment with labs across the country. In this program, trainees will spend time (weeks-months) in lab outside of the University of Michigan. The trainee will learn new techniques/skills, engage in lab meetings and discussions, and network with trainees and faculty at the host institution. Upon return to their lab at the University of Michigan, the trainee with give a short seminar detailing their experience and the impact it had on their project.
