ALERT was present at YES Meeting - Young European Scientists Meeting, which is an event organized by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP). This event took place at FMUP and the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation in Porto, Portugal, on September 24-26, 2010.
The talks given for this occasion reflected biomedical student education, regarding such areas of interest as Chronic Pain, Evolution and Medicine, Stem Cells, Ischaemic Heart Disease, Oncological Therapy, and were an opportunity for every YES participant to learn more from world-class experts on these matters.
Yes Meeting also featured the presentation of biomedical projects developed by students, and awards were given to the best ones in each field, which will in turn provide the opportunity to promote and stimulate undergraduate research.
The building of a worldwide network of students was also one of the event’s goals.
ALERT, sponsor of YES Meeting - Young European Scientists Meeting 2010, participated in two presentations and had a booth where visitors were able to become acquainted with ALERT® solutions, such as ALERT® STUDENT – an innovative tool for the teaching and learning of Medicine, which provides students and lecturers with a knowledge network built in a collaborative manner.
