The Proxima Symposium is an international symposium organized by Brazilian and International scientists that aim to strengthen the scientific community in Brazil and Latin America and foster a local culture of gathering young scientists to discuss current state-of-the-art research in biological and biomedical sciences.

We seek to inspire and advance the career of talented young Brazilian scientists with an interest in the fields of biological and biomedical sciences to contribute to a stronger scientific education in Brazil and build a generation of science leaders committed to improving society.

By supporting and training young talented scientists, we seek to reduce opportunity and achievement gaps in Brazil and foster the next generation of science leaders for the betterment of our societies and local communities.
