We are part of an institution that makes a difference for students and teachers," she stated.

"Together, we will make this team shine ever more, encouraging teachers and students to the conquest of new academic areas in Brazil and worldwide. I'll bring the news and discoveries of the program to share with everyone. Being part of the IBMR team is an honor," added Maria Cecilia.

The majority of the 37 professors selected to join the program are doctors (PhD) and represent the areas of Sociology, International Development, Quantitative Sciences (Economics and Demography), as well as scientists working in the fields of Natural Resources, Atmospheric Science and Forestry.
