NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, NY, said today that it has orchestrated a research exchange program for graduate students with Sweden’s Karolinska Institute that will allow them to study translational research in the others’ labs.
The agreement allows Karolinska graduates to conduct post-doctoral research at the Feinstein Institute and Feinstein graduates to study in Karolinska’s Stockholm labs.
“Our mission is translational research, and we offer a progressive basic and clinical training environment,” said Kevin Tracey, director and chief executive at the Feinstein Institute.
The collaboration will enable as many as half a dozen research students from each institute to study abroad.
The graduate students at both institutes are medical doctors who are now pursuing doctorate degrees in research.
