Science Our Way / Ciência di Noz Manera

Huge thanks to our 18-strong team of scientists from the Champalimaud Foundation for their amazing efforts towards making research and careers in science accessible to 9th graders in Greater Lisbon - a great success all round!

Find out more about this project on our dedicated page: https://quantocancer.fchampalimaud.org/ciencia-di-noz-manera

and Watch this Space for Phase 3, coming in early 2022. 

Photos: Phase 2 of QuantOCancer’s #scienceeducation project taking place this week at Pedro D’Orey da Cunha high school in Amadora. 9th graders get hands-on to build their own mini folding microscopes, trace neurons, grasp immune cell phagocytosis, build programs to measure electricity in their own body and follow embryo development, with the help of PhD students and Postdocs.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

To wrap-up today’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science celebrations, here is a short video called “Science & Curiosity: it’s a love affair!” from our amazing QuantOCancer team.
Principal Investigator and ERA Chair Adriana Sánchez-Danés and Senior Research Technician Patrícia Das Neves Borges tell us about their research projects and how they became interested in science.
An inspiring message to girls and young women with curious minds and the will to explore the world!
