XIII SBBN Congress and 20th IUPAB Congress, Foz do Iguaçu, 4-8/10/2021
The President´s message
We are very proud promoting the XIII Brazilian Society on Nuclear Biosciences Congress along with the 20th International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics Congress, being this opportunity the best scenario for the scientific multidisciplinary approach.
For planning the Congress program, they were established three objectives:
- Presenting nuclear energy innovations in Health (drug discovery, molecular imaging and therapy) and Agriculture (food irradiation and plagues extermination), as well as the radioisotopes production technology and the uranium fuel cycle impact. For all those activities, the Safety Culture is mandatory for the protection of workers, public, patients and the environmental, including animals and plants.
- Comparing the models used in Radiation Biology, both for low doses or high exposures rates, with the achievements in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Epidemiology, Immunology, Pharmacology, and, specially, Biochemistry and Biophysics. The risk analysis (nuclear, radiological, sanitary and environmental) conducted by the regulatory bodies should be continuously updated according to the scientific state of the art.
- Creating opportunities for the nuclear energy promotion among researchers, teachers, students, professionals and the general public. In this context, the satellite activity – the meeting with the Foz do Iguaçu high school teachers – is an example.
I thank very much the speakers for accepting our invitation, the participants for trusting in our work and the organizer team for the indispensable support.
Silvia Maria Velasques de Oliveira, Brazilian Society on Nuclear Biosciences President
