Bruno Guerreiro, Rafael Rippel, Pilar Portela, João Rodrigues and Artur Neves are the most recent students at the NOVA School of Science and Technology that won the competitive Fulbright Grants for Research, supported by FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia).
This scholarship program allows doctoral students to carry out a period of research at a North American university or research center, thus stimulating the exchange of knowledge between the two countries.
Bruno Guerreiro, a doctoral student in Biochemistry, will develop his thesis at the University of California-Berkeley. The same institution will equally receive Rafael Rippel, from the PhD program in Sustainable Chemistry. Pilar Portela, a PhD student in Biotechnology, will go to Yale University. And finally, João Rodrigues, in the PhD program in Biomedical Engineering, will go to the University of California-Riverside. Artur Neves, a doctoral student in Conservation and Restoration, will collaborate with the Smithsonian Institution and the University of Maryland.
