Na primeira pessoa,  Catarina Azevedo  partilha connosco a sua experiência Fulbright. Ao abrigo de uma Bolsa Fulbright para Investigação com o apoio da FCT (22/23) e no âmbito do seu doutoramento em “Biomedical Sciences” da Universidade do Porto, Catarina desenvolveu parte da sua pesquisa na Pittsburgh University, PA, EUA:


«It has definitely played a transformative role both professional and personally. It gives you another perspective of things, more independence and problem solver capacity in general. Particularly in the professional component, it gives you another way to look at the data, another way to do things and makes you to improve your critical thinking. It was also essential to have the support of my family and friends in this side of the ocean.

The Fulbright program was a one-time and incredible experience, but also a big challenge and made me push my limits and exceed myself. In the end, I can say it was a very positive and transformative experience. I have learned a lot and made good friends. I’m very grateful for this opportunity and the impact it had in my professional and personal life.»



Thank you so much, Catarina, all the best!
