Outreach in High School, Colégio Moderno, April 4th, 2017, Lisbon

1. Chemistry, Science and Life, A. P.Rauter

2. Medicinal Chemistry, A. M. Matos. 

3. Chemistry: Research in favor of Human Health, J. M. Barros

Comment from School Teachers: 

“The conference revealed to be very important, as it accomplished several goals: on the one hand, it deconstructed the idea that chemistry only exists in the laboratory or that it only deals with complex scientific facts by exemplifying its presence in a number of day-to-day occasions; and, on the other hand, it clarified the idea of what it means to be  a  science  professional  (often  distorted  in  the  minds  of  young  students)  by  showing  the  several  stages  of  a scientific research project. Moreover, the conference highlighted the role of chemistry and its interventions in the improvement of human life quality. For all the above reasons, we conclude that the conference was extraordinarily useful in the sense of making student’s career choices more mindful, particularlytothose who wish to pursue an academic path and professional career in the chemistry field.”

Comment from the Students: 

“It was an honour to us to attend this conference during science week, which focused on the following topics:Chemistry, Scienceand Lifeby Professor Amélia Pilar RauterMedicinal Chemistryby the PhD student Ana Marta de MatosChemistry: Research in favour of Human Healthby the PhD Student João Manuel de BarrosWe found thesetopics interesting and extremely important. Chemistry-related areas are increasingly more in tune with those of Medicine, with information exchange relationships between both fields being more and more fortified over time. Thus, man is offered not only a better understanding of the world around him and of himself, but also the means to live a more dignified and prolonged life. The contemporaneity of the topics and the possible impact they would have on us were the more relevant reasons for our interest in this conference.
