The New Jersey Center for Biomaterials at Rutgers University hosts an international summer exchange program as part of the International College of Fellows - Biomaterials Science and Engineering (ICF-BSE). The purpose of the program is to create valuable training experiences in leading edge biomaterials research for advanced graduate students. These young scientists are drawn from the most prominent biomaterials research laboratories worldwide for a 3-month summer research experience. Unlike many traditional exchange programs, each international student will have a pre-arranged work plan, access to state-of-the-art equipment, and the mentorship of a senior faculty member to advance their research and form lasting collaborations.
The International Summer Exchange Program is open to international graduate students of ICF-BSE fellows doing research that requires facilities or expertise that are not available in their home countries. NJCBM has hosted students from Singapore, France, Australia, India, Poland, Spain, Brazil and China to name a few.
