Medical Science Pillar encompasses many key research principles and practical skills which are essential for every future physician. Its aim is to provide a platform where all the students who are interested in medical science can communicate with each other, learn from good examples, try themselves in various workshops and get inspired by best European scientists. Our projects are designed for everyone – a very beginner or a proficient researcher who is ready to publish first publication! We believe this pillar will help students to put a strong base for their professional scientific career.
