SEBBM European Researchers' Night 2021 workshops

On the evening of 24 September 2021 the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) celebrated the European Researchers’ Night with an online event. The event had to be online one more year, to accommodate ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Under the title of “Plants' superpowers", an engaging lecture given by Dr Pilar Cubas from the  Centro Nacional de Biotecnologia-CSIC was followed by two workshops, delivered by young members of SEBBM.

SEBBM has added English subtitles to the recordings of the two workshops and has made them available to encourage and support science communication activities among visitors to the FEBS Network Outreach Room.
