On 9 December, another Research Day was held at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon (FMUL), a joint organization of the Office for the Support of Scientific and Technological Research and Innovation (GAPIC) and the Students Association of the Faculty of Medicine of Lisbon (AEFML).
This year, the pandemic situation did not allow the event to take place face-to-face, as usual, so it took an online format. Despite these circumstances, the event was widely attended, with over 150 participants.
Under the topic Science is ON, Research Day allowed undergraduate students to present research projects conducted as part of the “Education through Science” Programme and CHULN/FMUL Scholarships (23rd Edition), through a recording in video that was later discussed with a panel of professors and researchers from the FMUL, the iMM and the CHULN-HSM.
In addition to the presentation of the projects conducted by the students and the granting of the GAPIC David-Ferreira Award to the best Final Work/Thesis of the Integrated Master Degree in Medicine (2019/2020), the Research Paths session should be highlighted. During this session, Tiago Gil de Oliveira, Director of the MD-Ph.D. Programme of the School of Medicine of the University of Minho, presented the paper titled “14 years of the Minho MD/Ph.D. programme & my path from neuroscience to neuroradiology”, and Ricardo Fernandes, member of the GAPIC team and Coordinator of the PREPIT Project – Pre-graduate Research Programme Impact & Trajectories, presented the paper “GAPIC Experience”.
The day's programme ended with a session organized by the AEFML, in which the Research Competition of the AIMS Meeting 2021 was presented and the Research Day/ AEFML Awards were given to students who presented the three best videos.
In this brief note about Research Day, thanks are also due to the Communication Office, the Design Unit and the Audio-visual Unit, without which this event would not have taken place and, especially to all those who were with us on this day: students, tutors, lecturers and researchers, etc.
In the January edition of news@fmul, we will provide more details of this day when Science was ON. Stay tuned!
