The Biomedical Olympiacs tests students’ knowledge and interest in this area, specifically in molecular and cellular biology and human physiology, as well as in human diseases. The aim of the Olympics is to stimulate a desire to learn more about the workings of the cell and the human body in today’s young people, to inspire them to take better care of their health and the health of others through the study of disease, and to encourage young people to pursue careers in medicine, healthcare and biomedical sciences research.

Students can submit their project to the Biomedical Olympiacs in the form of a structured abstract in the first round and in the form of a poster in the second round. The purpose of the abstract or poster will be to determine and solve a specific biomedical problem.

Are you interested in the Olympics? If yes, please fill out this questionnaire.

First round: A structured abstract without the results section will be evaluated. We ask all participants to send the abstract by 31 December 2022 to the email address imbm@imbm.sk. Subsequently, the abstracts will be selected and their authors will be able to implement projects in cooperation with the assigned supervisor.

Second round: The poster will be evaluated, which will be designed according to the created abstract already with the results.
