This grant-funded international research program allows students to engage in scientific collaborations at top biology institutes in Japan.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF Project #1952513), this 10-week summer program (including nine weeks in Japan) will provide students with invaluable research and intercultural experiences while working with an international team of biologists on CRISPR-Cas9 techniques generating transgenic fish to study genetic elements regulating behavior.
Students will spend eight-weeks doing full-time research in a Japanese laboratory, mentored by a faculty member from the institution. The host sites include:
1. The National Institute of Genetics in Mishima, Japan
2. The Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules at Nagoya University in Nagoya, Japan
3. The National Institute of Basic Biology in Okazaki, Japan
Students at the three sites will work on related projects, with the intent of publishing a joint study.
