Mini-Sabbaticals for Technical Training
Mini-Sabbaticals are designed specifically for PUI Faculty who need to learn a special technique at a core facility outside Arkansas.
There are a number of venues are available to the faculty, including but not limited to:
- Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, http://www.cshl.edu/
- NIH Bio-Trac Program, http://biotrac.com/
- The Jackson Laboratory, https://www.jax.org/
- MDI Biological Laboratory, https://mdibl.org/
We will encourage partner/affiliate faculty to apply for funding to support such training. Applications up to $7,000 can include airfare, accommodations/lodging, meals, registration, supplies, and facility fees. Student participation is allowed and encouraged.
Once approved, the applicant will make all the arrangements following their home institution travel policy. Once the Mini-Sabbatical is complete, your institution will submit an invoice to the INBRE Office for reimbursement of the approved expenses.
