My PhD research work about anti-diabetic drugs, incretin-based therapies and cardiovascular ischemia was selected for a traveling grant and poster presentation at this prestigious congress. The event was organized by Dr. Oliver Schnell from Germany and Dr. Antonio Ceriello from Italy. Many distinguished cardiologists, diabetologists, endocrinologists and eminent researchers coming from the US, the UK and all over Europe joined the event, and only 3 abstracts were selected from 30 different research topics including Poster and Oral presentations, while the other 2 winners were Dr. Isabelle Johansson from Sweden, Dr. Tamara Kuchmerovska from Ukraine.

Selection criteria were based on:

  1. Innovative research in the field of diabetes and cardiovascular disease
  2. Acclaim of clinical and experimental fields of research

Dr. Kupai has always been a motivating and supportive person, and I believe that success in science always starts from encouragement. I’m proud of our lab for being a warm room of all my achievements and equally gratified of being a student at the University of Szeged.

All love for my second home country, Hungary.'

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
