The Abramson laboratory has been working to build a strong bond with the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology in Paraíba, Brazil and will be beginning a student exchange program in the near future.
Through a newly received National Science Foundation Partnerships for International Education (NSF-PIRE) grant we have established a multi-national network of research which includes the Middle East Technical Institute in Ankara, Turkey. Additionally the laboratory has a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) in Bursa and Ankara,Turkey.
Through the PIRE Grant the Abramson laboratory has been able to work closely with the scientists at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research for the past two years. This allows us to learn new techniques from and create networks with top international researchers.
