ICCVS is the center for many international researchers and multidisciplinary research to contribute to cancer vaccine therapy. Besides the research, ICCVS encourages sports activities because these develop skills like teamwork, leadership, patience, discipline, learning from failure, sportsmanship, etc. Therefore, we are happy to share that our deputy team leader, dr Sachin Kote, has been selected as the player from ICCVS and represented us in the University of Gdansk badminton team of the Academic Sport Association (Akademicki Związek Sportowy – AZS) in the national championship, held on March 25-27, 2022 in Gdynia, Poland.
AZS is the largest sports association in Poland and has a rich history. It has become the most numerous student organization operating at Polish universities. Playing any sports is the key to a healthy and balanced life, particularly the researcher/scientist life. Therefore, it is mandatory to play sports regularly, and these skills are equally important – says dr Kote. The UG badminton court is located at University of Gdańsk premises in Kładki street in Gdańsk. Prof. Tomasz is one of the finest coaches I have ever seen since I started to play badminton. We encourage all ICCVS and other UG department members to take advantage of the badminton facilities provided by the UG campus – adds dr Kote.
