Carta del presidente

Dear Friends and Colleagues

First of all, I want to express my deep gratitude for the trust you have given me by electing me as President of our society. I also want to extend my gratitude to the members of the Board of Directors, who have accepted the responsibility of leading the SENC alongside me during this period, which we face with great enthusiasm. I take this opportunity to greet those who already know me and introduce myself to those who don’t, as well as to share the key ideas I wish to promote in my role as President.

I want you to know that my words are an invitation to reflection and a constructive proposal to promote various activities that benefit different segments of our Society. This includes the organization of thematic meetings, the creation of active discussion forums and the offering of training and information activities aimed at young researchers. Key topics we would like to address include:

1) The use of animals in research, its necessity, advantages and limitations.
2) How to move towards open publishing and science in a rational, non-disruptive and equitable way for all.
3) The reform of the evaluation system of research, researchers and institutions, in line with a constantly evolving panorama, and participating in the international debate on the value of indicators as a measure of scientific excellence.

In short, our goal is to keep the Society active and vibrant. We not only want our scientists, especially the youngest ones, to present their work at major international events, but also to do so at our own National Congress. We will strengthen and expand activities between congresses so that our Society never temporarily “falls asleep”.

I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán Foundation for its continued support as a sponsor since 2023 of the Young Investigator Award.

Finally, I want to invite you all to integrate research with teaching, since both areas complement each other and are indivisible. Let us remember that our admired Cajal was both a researcher and a teacher, and excellence lies in that duality. That is what we seek for our Society: a community that inspires research and training, that radiates knowledge, teaches and manifests itself.

Receive an affectionate greeting
