The Science Xpression workshop will be taught entirely in English and will have practical and theoretical activities. We will make a wide dissemination of this workshop in the Post- Graduation from USP and beyond. This activity is expected to be part of a Postgraduate Course in our Program in Systems Biology and will benefit both students and students from other Postgraduate studies. This workshop will have four primary goals: (1) to practice giving oral presentations, (2) to practice writing abstracts that describe research interests and progress, (3) to develop communication skills, and (4) to learn about current topics in cell and molecular biology. Through this process, students will broaden their scientific horizons and enhance their ability to give presentations, write abstracts, and respond to questions and comments from others. (AU)
