The Annual Symposium BiotechHealth is incorporated in the International PhD Program in Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology Applied to Health Sciences (BiotechHealth), from Faculdade de Farmácia and Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar, University of Porto. The multidisciplinary environment of this Doctoral Programme aims to promote collaborations between academia, clinics and industry. Students from various scientific fields are enrolled in this program, focusing on areas such as nanomedicine, biology, bioinformatics, and materials science.
This year, the IX BiotechHealth Annual Symposium, themed "Resilient Science in a Changing World", is organized by the students from the 8th edition of the BiotechHealth Doctoral Program.
The Organizing Committee
Resilient Science in a Changing World is the capacity of the scientist to withstand adversity. In a world that is constantly changing, researchers are tackled almost everyday by new challenges, many very difficult to surpass. However, these challenges have been successfully overcome and the value given to science is growing worldwide. All of this is due to the resilience of scientists, who do not give up after the first setback, and always try to find a new opportunity when facing adversities.
This symposium is for researchers that keep battling, and for the ones who want to learn how to do that. Our goal is to show that even when things don’t work out as planned, there is always a new opportunity to thrive and achieve valuable results.
We would like to acknowledge our Institutional Partners for all the support and for making this event possible.
