PubdD Coimbra is "an initiative that gives the opportunity to all students" to present their doctoral work
Pancreatic Cancer Decoded was the theme of Inês Oliveira's presentation. The PhD student in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Coimbra was one of the March speakers at PubhD Coimbra.
Why did you decide to participate in PubhD Coimbra?
I think the initiative is excellent. It's an initiative that gives all students the opportunity, besides presenting a bit of their doctoral thesis, to also show the evolution of science. And I think it is up to all of us to be involved in this evolution. I think it is an excellent initiative.
How was your experience in this edition of PubhD Coimbra?
It was great! I enjoyed participating, and I would like to participate again later on if there is an opportunity. It makes us feel more at ease because it's an informal audience. It allows us to feel at ease to talk about the project. And the questions they ask us are out of the box because people are from different areas, which allows us to take our project further.
Would you advise other colleagues to participate?
I would definitely recommend it! I find this very interesting.
