The latest initiative of our network is to create science hubs across the continents. The first, focussing on Latin and South America is organised by Miryam Palacios Perez from Mexico, with the support of Savio de Torres Farias from Brazil.
Regardless of the fact that these areas are still continuously developing and evolving, nevertheless, there are many exceptional and world-renowned scientists who hail from the region. It is in this context that NoRCEL has initiated the Latin America Hub (LAHUB): to bring together the vast knowledge and abilities from eminent scientists and academics living and/or working in all of Latin and South America. This will help us learn from and share with each other even more about the origin and early evolution of life.
We would like to add that, although Spanish is widely spoken in the area, English is the current “Latin” or lingua-franca for science globally, so please do accept that most of the content is in English, with translations, where possible.
The very first colloquium of NoRCEL’s Latin America Hub, LAHUB2022, entitled:
Molecules from the early evolution of life
is a free-access event that took place online on SATURDAY the 19th of FEBRUARY, 2022
