NIMBioS supported several Sabbatical Fellows each year during the period 2010 – 2016. NIMBioS no longer provides financial support for Sabbatical Fellows, but continues to provide office space and a collaborative scientific environment for self-supported visitors. These individuals come to NIMBioS for visits of up to several months duration, with the length of stay determined by the objectives of the proposed project.
