The Sant Cugat Campus hosts the 1st edition of the UIC PhD Day: Health Sciences

The main objective of the conference organised by the Doctoral Academic Committee (CAD) for Health Sciences was to promote the transmission and dissemination of the health research carried out at UIC Barcelona

On Friday, 7 October, the Sant Cugat Campus hosted the 1st edition of the UIC PhD Day: Health Sciences, promoted by the Doctoral School. Aimed at doctoral, master’s degree, postgraduate and final year undergraduate students of the University, the scientific day made known the ten lines of research under the Doctoral Programme in Health Sciences. The heads of each line of research did this by giving an informative briefing that was followed by the presentation, in oral or poster format, of the one of their doctoral student’s research project.

During this scientific conference, participants were able to learn first-hand about the lines of research being carried out under the Doctoral Programme in Health Sciences:
