The University of Navarra held the investiture ceremony for 139 researchers who have defended their doctoral theses in the 2018-2019 academic year. The new doctors come from 22 countries and 15 faculties or centres of the institution, 21 of them from the San Sebastian campus.

The event was attended by the rector, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero; the godmother of the graduating class, María Dolores Odero de Dios, professor and researcher in the Department of Biochemistry and Genetics; and Irene Cantero González, doctor of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Nutrition, who spoke on behalf of her class.

"From now on it is up to you to continue on a path committed to research at the service of society," said the rector after the conferring of caps on the doctors.

He also remembered Ismael Sánchez Bella, the first rector of the University, who died on 16 December. Reviewing his arrival in Pamplona and the beginnings of the University, he said: "The story of Don Ismael reminds us that only optimists go far".

Service to society and individuals

For her part, Professor María Dolores Odero de Dios stressed the need to collaborate and work as a team, since "the adventure of doctoral research cannot be done alone". She also stressed that the ultimate goal "must be to serve society and people". To conclude, he encouraged to follow the example of Dr. Janet Rowley, who showed him that "good researchers are those who have a real interest in science and give their lives for it but, at the same time, try to do good to the people around them".

Finally, Irene Cantero González pointed out that not only have they achieved the highest level of specialisation in a subject, but also that the PhD has taught them "to think, to remain calm, to manage frustration, to be objective and critical, and to seek the truth".

The 139 theses defended in the 2018-2019 academic year were made possible thanks to the contribution of institutions such as the Association of Friends of the University of Navarra, the "la Caixa" Banking Foundation, the Caja Navarra Foundation and the Santander Bank, as well as alumni.
