XIII SBBN Congress and 20th IUPAB Congress, October 4h to 8th-open platform until November 2th

THE VIRTUAL PLATFORM WILL BE OPEN UNTIL NOVEMBER 2th! This is an opportunity to assist all simposya, conferences, E-posters and technical sections from SBBN and IUPAB congresses.

The Organizing Committee of the XIII BRAZILIAN SOCIETY ON NUCLEAR BIOSCIENCES CONGRESS 2021 invites you to partner with us in organizing this event, which will be held in parallel with the 20th Congress of the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB), the 45th Annual Brazilian Society of Biophysics Meeting, and the 50th Annual Brazilian Society of Biochemistry Meeting, during 4th-8th of October 2021, in a 3D virtual platform format.

Link to 20th IUPAB Congress program:

The SBBN Congress will be an excellent opportunity for participants to share information among the international scientific community aiming to promote new collaborations at research and technical projects in health, environmental and radiological safety, in a transdisciplinary approach.

Congress objectives:

a) Presenting biochemistry and biotechnology research for molecular imaging products, radiation therapy techniques and dosimetry, and discussing preclinical and clinical experiences.
b) Presenting nuclear analytical techniques for minimizing the environmental impact and improving water quality, pollution control, and the protection of biodiversity, as well as the sustainable transport of radioactive materials.
c) Comparing the Radiation Biology state-of-the-art with the diseases epidemiology surveys, discussing the society risk perception (nuclear, radiological, sanitary, and environmental) and comparing the actual regulatory framework with the new paradigms.


Dear colleagues,

I need to thank our official sponsor PETROBRAS and, also, the support of ELETRONUCLEAR because it allows registering 30 post-graduate students in Congress. Special gratitude to the colleagues from the Energy and Nuclear Research Institute, IPEN for the kind attention to our scientific events.

Also, we are very grateful to the speakers from Argentina, Austria, Brazil, France, the United Kingdom, Uruguay and the United States of America. Also, the Congress chairs and debaters. I recognize the work done by Mauricio, Cyntia and the team from the Brazilian Society on Biochemistry and Molecular Biology -SBBq. Thank you all.

In the present, we usually demonstrate gratitude for people that belong to our past, to our personal and professional lives. I prefer to keep them in mind because every person knows when she or he is important for inspiring us. I am deeply grateful to Prof. Marcelo Morales because without his support, it would be impossible to participate in this Conference.

We are focusing in the motivation and employability of the students. SBBN has planned this conference to discuss with them the scientific basis of Radiation Biology for sustaining nuclear applications balancing the risks and benefits to the public, workers and patients, as well as the environment. Humanity needs to have Science as a tool for equality, happiness, and for assurance of peace. The subjects to be discussed this week may interfere with our work and/or research. However, the most important goal to be achieved should be broken scientific paradigms with ethics, courage, and responsibility.

I desire you all an excellent conference.
Rio de Janeiro, October 4th, 2021.
