In Summer 2010, the GK-12 program is collaborating with the Majdic laboratory at The University
of Ljubljana in Slovenia to provide graduate fellows research
experience in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Electrical
Engineering at The University of Ljubljana.
The goal of the program
is for graduate fellows to broaden their perceptions, learn better
communication skills, and share research processes with others
in their field. Graduate fellows will also spend time in a grammar
school in Ljubljana to talk to teachers about their research
At the end of the collaboration, there will be a joint research symposium entitled "Understanding
cell communication using modern microelectronics." See
the Program for the Research Symposium.
