Brain Awareness Week 2022

As part of the Brain Awareness week, Miguel Castanho Lab was at Quinta da Vala primary school Vila Franca de Xira on March 17, 2022 to talk about “Developing smart drugs to treat the brain”. Around 64 students from the 3rd-grade learned about the blood-brain barrier, looking at cells under microscope and by simulating a small experiment. We have received a very good feedback from the students!
