Professor Cristobal G dos Remedios mentorship


As a non-English-speaking PhD student without previous scientific skills, I have been so lucky to be supervised and mentored by Professor Cristobal dos Remedios. In this commentary, I have commented my experience in dos Remedios laboratory. Finally, I would like to express my greatest appreciation to Professor dos Remedios for his kindness and mentorship over the last 31 years. His continuous support, which continues to the present, has been instrumental for the achievement of my current position.
