Allowable expenses include: Internships of up to a 1 month period, attending extramural courses (e.g. NIH, Cold Spring Harbor, Woods Hole, etc.), to learn new skills, and visiting laboratories to conduct collaborative studies.
Dr. Yarar will be going to NIH in Bethesda for a Biotrac workshop whose purpose is to teach Protein-DNA Interactions: Gene Specific and Epigenetic Regulation of Expression of the Mammalian Genome. It is a 5 day lab and lecture workshop.
