IBB Alumni

Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência has been training talented and motivated students that have joined renowned institutions across the globe.

Our former students are dispersed around the globe in renowned research institutions or leading successful careers in the private sector.  The IBB keeps in touch with its alumni and loses no opportunity to connect them with our current students.
