Research Exchange Program

Program Description

To support a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment, EBICS sponsors a Research Exchange Program. This program allows Center students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty who are working on collaborative projects to visit another laboratory to learn/transfer new methods and techniques, to develop professional relationships and collaborations, and to help integrate research efforts within EBICS. EBICS sponsored exchange visits will range from a few days to a few weeks, and will support travel, living, and housing expenses during the exchange period.


All current EBICS researchers at all EBICS institutions, including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members working on EBICS projects are eligible and encouraged to submit proposals here, and follow up with the respective Director/ Associate Director.

Selection and Management

EBICS research exchanges will be selected based on their importance in achieving the goals of the research project(s), in facilitating the intra-EBICS interactions, and the need to transfer and apply specific technologies developed in the EBICS labs. In addition, the educational and training value of the exchange will also be considered.

Proposal Submission

We particularly encourage our partner institutions and MSIs to take advantage of this program. Research exchanges are an integral part our education effort. Students at our core and partner institutions should use this opportunity to learn innovative techniques that further their EBICS research. See the application information on the left to get started.
