More than 60 Fulbright foreign students will be convening in Cambridge and Boston this week to discuss how to make advances in public health accessible technologies.
The students from more than 40 countries will be touring three labs in Cambridge Wednesday, and will be meeting in Boston’s Beacon Hill through the end of the week for a series of discussions.
The Fulbright students will be meeting with United States experts from local higher education institutions and the nonprofit sectors to exchange resources and ideas about public health.
The annual seminar, called “From Lab to Market” is sponsored by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
In Cambridge, the students will be visiting three sites between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, including stops at MIT’s H-Lab, the Forsythe Institute and the Broad Institute.
The seminar begins tonight with an opening address at 7:30 p.m. in the Holiday Inn Boston at Beacon Hill on Blossom Street, which will also house panel discussions with the students Wednesday and Thursday.
