An entire workshopfocused on biomedical research brought together more than 300 students from the School of Medicine, who met quotationon 30 March to address from different angles the research activity that is promoted from the Departmentsand centres of the University. "Throughout the Degree, the students of the Schoolhave the opportunity to participate in different projects of research, so, with this workshop, we wanted to give visibility not only to the researchthat they carry out, but also to what it has meant for the protagonists", explains Dr. Gema Frühbeck, Vice-Dean of research. "Doctors have to have researchin our DNA, as it is the only way to improve diagnoses and treatments for patients, so we also want to foster this passion for science in our students from the very beginning.

In addition, the students were able to hear first-hand the experiences derived from the Final Projects Degreedefended last year, and carried out from the approaches of researchbasic, clinical, epidemiological and translational, in University centres such as the high school of Tropical Health (ISTUN), the Clínica Universidad de Navarra or the School.
