Horizontes iMM: Uma pergunta a três

February 7, 2019


A scientist, a medical doctor and a patient are brought together around one same question. This is the motto for the new cycle of public talks that will be based on four discoveries made by iMM scientists. These discoveries may strongly impact the future of human health and we want the society to know it and discuss them. This cycle of talks will have in 2019 four sessions. The first session will be held on February 20 at 18h00, at the João Lobo Antunes Grand Auditorium.

Why does cancer escape us? is the first question that will be discussed by Fernando Rosas (former deputy of the Bloco de Esquerda, the patient), Luís Costa (the doctor) and Bruno Silva -Santos (the Scientist) and will be moderated by Graça Franco (journalist and Director of Radio Renascença). Between February and October (dates below) in addition to cancer, the public will be able to learn more and discuss neuromuscular diseases, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injuries.

We are interested in contributing actively to the public debate on the direction and purpose of biomedical research in Portugal and to a scientific dissemination of quality. The guest panel of these sessions brings physicians, scientists, politicians, journalists, important personalities from civil society and anonymous citizens to iMM, thus promoting a closer relationship between Science and Society. This initiative is made in partnership with Fundação Belmiro de Azevedo.
