Study abroad program accepting applications

The York University, Centre for Disease Modeling (CDM)  is offering a bi-lateral exchange program for students. Canadian students currently affiliated with the CDM (including my graduate students) can study at a leading institution in Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Turkey and Vietnam. Students from any university within Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Turkey or Vietnam also have the opportunity to come to Canada and study under the supervision of a CDM faculty member (right now there are 4 CDM affiliated faculty accepting students). It is possible that I will accept students through this program who have research interests that are in line with my own.
