Tra il 18 e il 24 marzo 2018 si è svolta la settimana di studio “Biology & Medicine”. Le sedi coinvolte sono state quest’anno le Università di Berna, Zurigo, e Ginevra e il Politecnico Federale di Losanna (EPFL). I lavori svolti dai partecipanti sono stati presentati al pubblico durante la manifestazione di chiusura presso l’EPFL. I 33 progetti realizzati dai 43 partecipanti hanno coperto uno spettro molto ampio di temi e argomenti: sono state affrontate questioni riguardanti la ricerca contro il cancro, la ricostruzione di tessuti, il sistema immunitario, la fotosintesi, la malaria, la sistematica paleontologica e tanto altro.
“It was a week full of learning, fun and interesting exchange with people working at the university and in the lab. I enjoyed experiencing the working life in a lab for a week. To meet passionated students from all over Switzerland was AMAZING!”
“It was like going very far from home, almost to another dimension for one week. You’re surprised of what you’re able to learn and do in only one week and get to know more amazing people.”
“Wonderful experience, I was very lucky to be a part of it.”
“It was a very good experience to see what the life of a scientist looks like. You have to be quite interested in the field about which the study week is about, because you’ll learn much detail and some previous knowledge makes it easier for you to keep up. But if you can identify with the previous points, it’s definitely a great experience.”
