The classes of the course “A Journey through X-Ray Crystallography” were concluded this Friday morning, February 14th. The theoretical 15-hour course was taught by Professor Paola Paoli, from the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Florence, who is visiting UFPR under the Internationalization Program (PrInt), managed by UFPR and funded by CAPES. The visit of Prof. Paola Paoli is linked to the Advanced Materials area of PrInt / UFPR.
The discipline counted on the participation of students from the undergraduate course in Chemistry, from the master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral courses at PPGQ and the doctorate in Biochemistry, all from UFPR, in addition to the master’s students in Chemistry from UTFPR. It was a very pleasant and productive week.
We are very grateful to Prof. Paoli for sharing with us her great experience in Chemical Crystallography.
