Journeys of Perseverance

As a researcher, you know a lot about overcoming obstacles and persisting when faced with setbacks. Your own scientific journey toward achieving success and advancing knowledge likely reveals a story led by perseverance, where failure was never a reason for you to stop.

The first story in our Journeys of Perseverance series takes you to Brazil, where a motivated researcher worked to become a leading expert in his field and is now passing the lessons he has learned on his own journey to his students.

Whether a journey for answers is short or long, no one has to travel alone.
ScienceDirect takes you there.
