Lab exchange for junior scientists
The Lab Exchange Program enables young scientists from EpiGeneSys labs to embrace new scientific concepts and gain experience in novel technologies with an overarching goal of narrowing the gap between epigenetics and systems biology. Up to 3000€ are available for travel plus room & board during the lab exchange.
Teodora Taseva, a PhD student in Dr. Leonid Penkov's lab in the Dept. of Molecular Genetics at the Bulgarian Academy of Science, is investigating genomic imprinting using parthenogenetic embryos as a model system. Until recently, her lab studied the expression of imprinted genes via RT-PCR. Through the EpiGeneSys Lab Exchange Program, she spent time in Anne Ferguson-Smith's lab learning a new technique to analyze DNA methylation—the bisulfite methylation assay. Teodora says, "The DNA methylation analysis that I learned will complement the objectives of my thesis. This experience will be shared with scientists from my department, and will contribute to our overall scientific work".
A colleague wants to do experiments in your lab? Want to learn a new technique? Have an experiment that you want to do in another lab? If so, read on for details on how to apply for the EpiGeneSys Lab Exchange Program.
The Lab Exchange Program enables young scientists from RISE1 and Associate labs to embrace new scientific concepts and gain experience in novel technologies with an overarching goal of narrowing the gap between epigenetics and systems biology.
