“The Citizen Science of Vital Brazil”. With this theme, the 30th edition of Ciência com Acarajé held on the night of September 28th, at Campus Cabula, began the official program of the XII Biomedicine Symposium which, this year, celebrates 20 years of the undergraduate course at the Bahiana. The evening's lecture was given by the professor of Bahiana, Dr. Tânia Kobler Brazil, granddaughter of Vital Brazil, founder of the Butantã Institute, having as guests the former coordinator of the Tutorial Education Program (PET) Biomedicine, professor Sidney Santana and professor Luís Henrique de Oliveira Silva, first coordinator of Science with Acarajé.
“There were two hours of conversation and a lot of science, which allowed us to appreciate this rich content in a more relaxed way, with a tasting of our acarajé”, said the coordinator of PET Biomedicina, Gabriel Queiroz. According to the program's former coordinator, professor Sidney Santana, Ciência com Acarajé was designed by professor Tânia Brazil and inspired by the UFBA Scientific Café. “Throughout these 30 editions, we have sought to bring current issues focused on science, also bringing speakers from outside the Bahiana".
Science with Acarajé is an initiative of the Biomedicine course, carried out through the Tutorial Education Program (PET) which aims to promote scientific discussions, through lectures. Over more than 10 years, the project received several guest speakers, including professors linked to Bahiana and researchers with prominent scientific work on the national and international scene.
