Northwestern University-University of Gothenburg Exchange Program

Northwestern University-University of Gothenburg Exchange Program


Northwestern University and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, established an education and research exchange program to foster collaborative relationships in biomedicine and translational research. The exchange program is open to medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty of both universities, and it provides for exchanges of scientific materials and information and cooperation in organizing joint research activities and conferences. The student exchange portion of the program provides graduate students with research opportunities in the laboratories of Northwestern and the University of Gothenburg. Visiting scholars are expected to participate on collaborative research projects at the host institution for 4-12 weeks. Northwestern's Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology (SQI) and Gothenburg's medical school, known as the Sahlgrenska Academy, are the primary institutions involved in managing and fostering the exchange program.
