Learning from the best of the best, networking with world experts in healthcare research, an exhilarating day at CERN, thoughtfully designed events and schedules, amazing organisers at ESI and a fantastic diverse body of participants made my time here one of the best fortnights of this year. It truly was the place to be!
The Precision Oncology summer school is more than just a school. I feel like we built a whole new network with many students and experts in different field and expertise. I have fun discovering new knowledge and friends.
Each day was memorable for me, meeting people from other cultures and knowing that I am being part of something as great and innovative as this project always kept me excited. Without any doubt I had an incredible experience.
This summer school course might be a great way to prove that you are a capable, self-reliant individual. This course helped me to access my true potential, silence my self-doubts and give me the confidence to pursue my dreams.
The patient testimony session was impressive. It really impacted me; it allows us to remember why we are working in this field. It is important to remember that our goal is to help the patients and not only focus on the scientific part. This testimony reminded us that there are actual people behind all this science and it’s not only theories and profitability.
As a participant, it was a great experience to have a voice. A voice to create a new project, useful for the actual research. The best point is the teamwork because it allows different points of view to make the project viable.
