The Art Gallery is an outreach section of the website of the Spanish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) that seeks to bring science to citizens through the publication of images of scientific content. In this way the image becomes a new vehicle for scientific dissemination.
In this section the SEBBM monthly publishes the best pictures sent by SEBBM members. The photograph must be related to scientific research in any of its many areas.
The twelve photos selected will be displayed on panels during the Congress of the SEBBM and annually will be edited a calendar that will include the photos that have been published in the Art Gallery section during the year.
