Global education is a priority for Columbia University and its network of Global Centers. Since its foundation, the Santiago Center has developed and facilitated various academic and professional training programs for Columbia students in collaboration with local partners.
These education programs cover a variety of subjects and benefit mostly graduate and PhD Columbia students. Among them, are the academic exchanges between students of astrophysics of Columbia University and Universidad Católica, and between graduate students of the Aging Center at Mailman School of Public Health and Universidad Diego Portales.
Three undergraduate Columbia Engineering students --Temitope Akinade, Sofía Barbosa, and Lance Avery Murphy—participated in an "International Seminar for Engineering Leaders" (ISEL), held in Santiago in late September.
Columbia University congratulates Joachim Frank, PhD, professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics and of biological sciences, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017, shared with Richard Henderson and Jacques Dubochet “for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.”
