Lectures at the Osteology Research Academy in Rio de Janeiro were provided by renowned and experienced experts from Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, as well as Europe, who gave a comprehensive view on most of the aspects of pre-clinical and clinical studies that required by young researchers for their daily work. There was also enough time for discussions with the experts, as well as for networking among the participants. Workshops on analytical techniques as well as preclinical and clinical protocol development provided even more time for exchange.
Feedback from the participants was overwhelming. They spoke of a “life-changing event for their research career”, praised the “great learning atmosphere”, and were “thankful to be able to participate is such a great event”, and were “very happy to get this opportunity to extend the professional network”.
Also the organizers and chairmen were very pleased with this first course in South America, and praised the very high level of the course. It is already decided that the Osteology Research Academy will return to Rio de Janeiro in 2019, and we are looking forward to it!
