Interdisciplinary research often requires new skills - beyond the previous experience of researchers working on such projects. NBTC staff provide training and support for researchers working on new topics. Minicourses are open to all members of the research community, including those at Cornell, from other institutions, government agencies, and industry.
Minicourses are intensive, hands-on classes that allow researchers to develop practical lab skills in new fields over several days. Instruction takes place in groups of 6 of fewer, to ensure individual attention.
These minicourses take place throughout the year, and frequency is based on user demand.
