PubhD Coimbra is "a way to put communication skills into practice"
From the PhD in Experimental Biology and Biomedicine, Simão Santos brought his research project to the July edition of PubhD Coimbra: "How do our arteries age?". The PhD student is part of the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra.
Why did you decide to participate in PubhD Coimbra?
First, because I was invited - and I looked at the challenge and said, "look, why not?" and then I accepted. And on the other hand, it was also a way to put more communication skills into practice and challenge myself.
How was your experience in this edition of PubhD Coimbra?
It was very soft, it was all very smooth, and it was also a very informal and relaxed atmosphere. There was no pressure to "be presenting".
Would you advise other colleagues to participate?
Yes. I brought a few to watch!
