Thesis IV


In the Curricular Unit “Thesis”, students should develop a research project in biomedicine under the foundation of mechanisms of disease, with high scientific and technical merit. This project should be developed under the supervision of researchers or teachers affiliated to the participating institutions.

During the development of the work for their doctoral thesis, students should acquire the skills that will allow them to understand the research process and, consequently, to start an autonomic and independent scientific career that involves the scientific supervision of postgraduate students, as well as the development of research projects.
