The main goals of the PhD Committee are to represent the CEDOC|ToxOmics PhD Students and organize the PhD Student's Annual Retreat. Furthermore, we aim to promote the interaction between professors, investigators, post-docs, students, and all employees of the CEDOC|NMS community, to build up a solid team spirit. Our work also intends to build bridges between the research institutes in the Lisbon area to further promote interaction, discussion and exchange of knowledge.

General Objectives and Plans
In order to raise funds for the PhD Student's Annual Retreat, the PhD Committee organizes and coordinates several activities throughout the year, like the Beer & Food hour after the Casual Friday with Science Seminars, the CEDOC Quizzes, and the Magusto, Christmas, Carnival, and Santos Populares parties.
