The future of biomedical research is revealed in Cuéllar

The doctoral students of the Doctoral School of the University of Valladolid are holding their follow-up meeting these days in Cuéllar. In it, the academic committee of the Doctorate in Biomedicine and Advanced Therapies program can follow the development of their doctoral theses. Between the Participating is the researcher from Cuellar Laura Senovilla, thanks to whom this follow-up meeting takes place in the town, where more than thirty young students meet to show the academic commission the moment in which their doctoral theses are progressing.

Diego Sánchez, coordinator of the program, explained that the structure of these sessions is divided into small talks of about ten minutes in which the students, who range from the first year to the last of their doctoral thesis, show how their research project is evolving. and its training. To this small talk are added another five minutes of questions that are asked by their classmates and the professors of the academic committee.

For two days, future doctors present the most varied works in which practically all areas of biomedical research are touched upon. Research projects are put on the table that are very focused on the basic part of the functioning of cells and molecules that are related to some type of human disease, since “there is always this idea of ​​translating what one learns with basic research into “applied research”, to others more focused on biomedical engineering issues, generating substrates for cells to grow, working to generate new types of molecular therapies that can kill cancer cells. “There is a lot of heterogeneity, because it is a fairly transversal program,” explained the coordinator.


This monitoring is intended to offer students the possibility of presenting and evaluating their training and research results, and at the same time in a ‘pleasant’ environment, since the most scientific part is experienced through scientific conferences of each of the disciplines. «Here it is a much more family atmosphere. “There are them, their classmates and the academic committee, who know us all, many of them are teachers and we are being their tutors,” said Sánchez, who pointed out that for a fifth-grade student it is almost the exit ramp towards the presentation of their doctoral thesis, while for a first-year student “it is a friendlier environment, although it is a little more stressful, but they feel more comfortable when it comes to starting to disseminate their science, which is what is intended” .
