“EDUCATION THROUGH SCIENCE” PROGRAMME
The “Education through Science” – Research Projects for Students Programme aims at stimulating the practice of scientific research by undergraduate students, allowing them to directly take part in the outlining and execution of laboratory or clinical research projects, while integrated into a research team operating at a unit of FMUL, the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) or the Santa Maria Hospital (HSM), under the supervision of a tutor.
It is open for students of the Integrated Masters Course in Medicine (Second year and upwards), and of other undergraduate courses in which FMUL is a partner, with an interest in scientific research and for students enrolled for the option “Research Project” seeking funding for their project.
These competitions, promoted by the GAPIC, are intended to allow students to, under supervision and in different phases, go through all stages of an educational process in science. This process includes the development, by the student, of a scientific project based on an original hypothesis, its submission for funding by the GAPIC (based on peer reviews), its supervised execution, the public presentation of the results at the “Education through Science” Workshop, as part of the commemorations of Research Day and, lastly, the writing of a report formatted as a scientific article.
Each year, the students are invited to present the results of their research projects at the “Education through Science” Workshop, as part of the commemorations of Research day.
20 years of “Education through Science”!
Take this opportunity to participate in a research project!
Applications for Scientific Research Project Grants for FMUL Students (2016/2017) are open from 1 to 30 September 2016
20th “Education through Science” Programme – Grants intended for laboratory or clinical research developed at an FMUL, IMM or HSM/CHLN research unit.
3rd Competition for CHLN / FMUL Grants – Intended for projects with an exclusive or predominant clinical component to be developed at CHLN Clinics or Laboratories.
In this 20th edition of the Programme, regulations and deadlines have been changed in order to adjust the various phases of the Programme with the development of the projects per se.”
