- “Why did I join BRaS?” Many researchers choose this career because they want to help other people. That’s my case. When I joined the group, I accepted the challenge to make a difference in people’s lives. I joined BraS because I believe that it is possible to do science and continue in the area I chose for my professional life. In tough times, it is necessary to create connections and maintain networks of contact and research. I strongly believe in BraS contribution to research development and in establishing closer ties with other institutions.
