CSIBD Mini-Sabbaticals

Rationale of the Mini-Sabbatical Training

Successful transfer of technology between laboratories often requires direct contact between investigators and the exchange of pretested reagents. CSIBD laboratories have continued to serve as homes for mini-sabbaticals during which visiting investigators learn new methods and techniques.

Visiting scientists who have recently spent mini-sabbaticals with Center investigators and programs:

Cisca Wijmenga
Professor of Genetics
University of Groningen

Mihai G. Netea
Professor of Experimental Medicine
Radboud University Nijmegen

Essi Laajala, Tommi Vatanen, Harri Lähdesmäki, Riikka Lund
Turku Centre for Biotechnology
Turku, Finland
