The SCGB has resources and funding available to researchers who wish to organize and host workshops on topics relevant to the mission of the program. A member of the SCGB must be included on the organizing committee, but workshops can include presenters and attendees outside the collaboration.
The SCGB has funds available to support in-person group meetings of SCGB collaborations. These meetings can take place at the Simons Foundation or elsewhere and may include PIs and trainees. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed quarterly.
The SCGB has funds available to enable exchanges of trainees between SCGB-funded labs. The length of the exchange term is flexible: Trainees are welcome to visit other labs for informal interactions and presentations for a day or two, or they can be embedded in the lab for weeks to learn a new technique. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed quarterly.
