To me, PDBC is to become a true biologist in 10 month. The exposure to a broad and inspirational variety of topics, to outstanding national and international scientists, and to the vibrant scientific environment which is the IGC: never was living in a holiday resort such as Oeiras so stimulating. I hope we can carry that momentum beyond the four years of PhD, and that I eventually learn Portuguese... (2011-09-15)
