On the evening of 27 November 2020 the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) celebrated the European Researchers’ Night with an online event. The event had been delayed from its usual last Friday of September, and planned online, to accommodate ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
Under the title of “How to eat healthily: biochemical properties of plant-based foods", an engaging lecture given by Dr José Miguel Mulet from the Universidad de Valencia-CSIC was followed by three workshops, delivered by young members of SEBBM.
SEBBM has added English subtitles to the recordings of the three workshops and has made them available to encourage and support science communication activities among visitors to the FEBS Network Outreach Room.
