Virtual Event: 1st Latin American Biocatalysis Symposium (March 30, 2023)

Dear Chemistry Europe Members,


We are excited to announce the 1st Latin American Biocatalysis Symposium which will showcase the scientific advances realized in Latin American biocatalysis labs with international colleagues from all around the world, establishing bonds between research centers, while also creating new opportunities for young researchers.

When: Thursday, March 30, 2023 at 15:00 CEST

The Speakers:


  • Fabricio Freije Garcia (Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argetina): Sustainable Synthesis of Therapeutic Agents: The Potential of Biocatalysis in Medicinal Chemistry
  • Javier Breccia (Universidad Nacional de La Pampa, Argentina): Microbial Diglycosidases, Applications
  • Fabricio Bisogno (Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina): Enzymatic cascades in asymmetric organosulfur chemistry
  • Rodrigo de Souza (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil): Process Intensification on Chemo-Enzymatic Cascade Reactions
  • Nadia Guajardo (Universidad Tecnológica Metropolitana, Santiago, Chile): Enzymatic biocatalysis of furans to obtain bulk compounds
  • Jenny Blamey (Fundación Biociencia, Santiago, Chile): Versatility of extremophilic enzymes through their metabolic functionality
  • Ronny Martinez Moya (University of La Serena, Chile): Immobilized Biocatalyst Engineering, integrating enzyme immobilization and protein engineering as a novel approach for improving biocatalysts
  • Georgina Sandoval (Center for Research and Assistance in Technology and Design of the State of Jalisco (CIATEJ), México): Industrial Biocatalysis in CIATEJ
