I loved working with people from different backgrounds and cultures and developing a project with them. All the speakers brought up interesting research and topics and I enjoyed learning about different fields of study.
UHC School Lab gave me the opportunity to present the existing health problems in my area. The sharing with the students from Grenoble and the mentoring by tutors and coaches allowed me to improve my project throughout the school.
An experience I will never forget! The school allowed me to work with coaches, learn how to build a professional network and collaborate with Béchar’s midwives as part of my project.
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.
I truly enjoyed the hands-on sessions as I never thought I was someone who would enjoy anything that was remotely related to bioinformatics. But it was genuinely very interesting. And everyone was super nice and friendly.
This experience provided meeting experts and people from different backgrounds and ways of thinking, learning how to present a project professionally and discovering new aspects of myself from this challenging experience.
The program was very educational and opened a wide variety of ideas and opportunities in science and research. Scientific communication was very well addressed during the sessions. Altogether, it was a wonderful experience filled with good memories.
