LatAm Hub 2022 1st LATIN AMERICA Colloquium

Miryam Palacios-Pérez
Head, NoRCEL Latin America Hub

The very first colloquium of NoRCEL’s Latin America Hub, LAHub2022, organised by Miryam Palacios Pérez entitled: Molecules from the early evolution of life was a free-access event held online on Saturday the 19th of February, 2022. It was extremely well supported by science enthusiasts and practitioners from all four corners of the globe. The presentations delivered by our six scientists from Mexico and Brazil were exceptionally interesting, thought provoking and very well received by the participants. As a result, NoRCEL looks forward to hosting many such events and an excellent progression for our Latin America Hub.
