Medical International Conference for Students

8-10 April

MEDICS is the annual international conference of the Scientific Organisation of Medical Students. This year, the experience goes on with the 7th edition. Since medicine is in permanent development, it is essential for us, as future doctors and researchers, to be connected to scientific evolution. Join science by attending our inspiring live virtual conferences. Discover the genuine achievements of the scientific world through our events: Nobel prize lectures, Keynote lectures held by world-renowned role models of science.

Join us – we’ll bring the science!

NOBEL PRIZE CONFERENCE- What medical scientists should learn when everything is online?

Leland Hartwell, along with Tim Hunt and Sir Paul Nurse, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2001 for their discoveries of key regulators of the cell cycle.

In order to help students develop “the ability to think for themselves”, as Hartwell puts it, scientists and teachers are required to deliver the knowledge and skills needed for growth and progress by rethinking learning, innovating education and  addressing new skills requirements. “We want our students to have an authentic experience of science”, says Hartwell, and in digital-age learning  is made possible through systemic and holistic change, having the potential to make educational systems more innovative and efficient, while also allowing individuals to engage in new and more flexible ways of lifelong learning.

NOBEL PRIZE CONFERENCE- The challenge of public science communication

Peter Doherty was awarded the 1996 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. He is an australian immunologist, with a master’s degree in veterinary science and a Ph.D. in Pathology from the University of Edinburgh.

During this pandemic, we hear everyday the words “immune system” and “viruses”.
Even if the whole mankind focuses on one virus, there are more viruses in the world than we acknowledge. But the questions remain: How our immune system manages to protect us from all known or unknown threats? And how exactly our immune system knows to differentiate between the healthy cells and the infected ones?
If you too have been mesmerized by the ingenuity of immunology, get ready to meet our speaker at MEDICS 2022!
