During World Sleep Congress I have met a number of academics and professionals from different countries who have similar research interests.
Having this grant allowed me to discuss and learn with sleep experts that helped me to be able to contribute with excellent research to the scientific community with my PhD project. In the future, this expertise will allow me to have access to more and better opportunities.
