About Us

The Brazilian Society on Nuclear Biosciences (SBBN) was founded in 1996 at the Institute of Biology, Rio de Janeiro State University, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
About 300 affiliates, among undergraduate and postgraduated students, researchers and professionals of public and private institutions develop research in the field of Biomedical Sciences, Biology, Pharmacy, Chemistry and Physics.
The SBBN main objectives are: (i) research in biological effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation for improving methodologies for patients imaging and treatment of several diseases and (ii) development of human capabilities in multidisciplinary teams.

SBBN operates under the principles and promise of developing scientific approaches, involving the use of sources of radiation, to generate, discuss and disseminate knowledge that can be used to improve the quality of life, while simultaneously minimizing the impact on the environment.

SBBN have been working together with another Brazilian and international scientific societies participating of their meetingss, disseminating the knowledge in the field of ionizing radiation focusing the stat-of-the-art in the field. On the othr hand, SBBN affiliates have participated and learned that knowledge in Immunology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics and Pharmacology could improve the development of new molecules for use in diagnosis and therapy for cancer, inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases, among others.

The post-graduated students can disclose their studies by panels sections and oral communications publishing abstracts and full articles revised by the scientific commission in the scientific journal ANNALS OF THE SBBN.

The SBBN Award for Scientific Dissemination has been offered for the best abstracts in the master’s and doctoral categories.

Main achievements:

2002 – Associated to the Brazilian Federation on Experimental Biology Societies (www.fesbe.org.br)

2010 – Scientific agreement with the (Brazilian) National Research Council (CNPq) for facilitating the financial support for the SBBN scientific events (www.cnpq.br)

2015 – Associated to the Brazilian Society for the Progress of Science (www.sbpcnet.org.br) in the field of Biological and Life Sciences

2017 –Associated to the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (www.iupab.org)

SBBN events:

1997 – The SBBN first Meeting hapenned at the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Topics: Teaching and Quality in Nuclear Biosciences, Medical Physics, In Vivo and In Vitro diagnostic methods, Photobiology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiological Protection, Radiobiology, Radiopharmacy and Toxicology.

1988 – The SBBN II Meeting happened in the city of Recife, Pernambuco state.

2001 – The III Meeting of the SBBN was realized in the city of Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul state, with the participation of several researchers from Latin America countries.

2002 – The SBBN international conference entitled Advances in Nuclear Medicine and in Radiopharmaceuticals in the city of Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro state.

2003 – The SBBN IV Meeting was held in the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte.

2005 – The V Meeting of the SBBN and the I Hispano-Brazilian Scientific Meeting occurred simultaneously in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais state. That event highlighted the researches, which indicated the new trends in radiopharmacy, applications in nuclear medicine, dosimetry and nanobiotechnology. Such topics were revisited in 2008, during the VI Congress of the SBBN, in Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro state. 2012 – The VII International Congress of SBBN occurred in the city of Recife, Pernambuco state, with the theme: “Radiations in Biosciences: Advances and Perspectives”.

Currently, besides the periodic meetings, SBBN has enhanced its participation in the scientific community, by motivating the participation of researchers from Brazil and other countries and trying to become a permanent forum of scientific networking, not only for its members but also for those involved in activities related to research, development and innovation in Biosciences.
