PhD Workshop

On the 10th of February 2023, the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona hosted a PhD Workshop at Campus Clinic.

The workshop session started with an opening ceremony by Cristina Pulido, Research developer of the Institute, who presented the PhD Committee. They introduced themselves and explained what the PhD Committee is, some ideas and plans they have for the future and introduced the first activity of the day.

To kick start the workshop, Alba Ortega Gascó teased the PhD students asking if they would be able to explain their research in less than 5 minutes. After some tips on how to explain the basis of a good scientific speech for a general audience, 6 brave students from the audience took a chance a gave it a try right then and there

Afterwards there was a Round Table where the students had the opportunity to talk with the members of the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB)

  • Kimmo Alho, University of Helsinki, Finland
  • Frederic Saudou, Institute of Neuroscience, University Grenoble-Alps, France

To conclude the PhD Workshop, the PhD students enjoyed some snacks, it was a just fun time, where they had the chance to interact with other PhD Students of UB on the Neuroscience field in a relaxed atmosphere, share their interests, ideas, research, etc…
