Every year, the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES, in Portuguese) presents its Thesis Awards, dedicated to the best doctoral thesis defended in the whole country. In 2017, UNICAMP was awarded two prizes, one of them being of special relevance to BRAINN.

The thesis “FUNCTIONAL AND STRUCTURAL CONNECTIVITY IN PATIENTS WITH FOCAL EPILEPSY“, by student Brunno Machado de Campos, received the CAPES Award in the category ‘Medicine I’. Brunno is supervised by prof. Fernando Cendes, BRAINN´s main Coordinator.

The award winners receive, in addition to honors, several incentives to improve his/her academic career:

  • a diploma,
  • a medal and
  • a national postdoctoral fellowship of up to 12 months;

Dr. Fernando Cendes will receive assistance for participation in any national congress, in the amount of R$3 thousand. There are also distinctions to be given to the supervisor, co-orientator and the program in which the thesis was defended; as well as a fully paid trip for the author and his supervisor to attend the award ceremony, which takes place in December.

BRAINN congratulates Brunno and dr. Fernando Cendes for this invaluable achievement!
