The secret life of plant researchers


The secret life of plant researchers


You can now visit the photographic exhibition until the 17th of January 2020 at the UAB’s Biblioteca de Comunicació i Hemeroteca General!


The Secret life of a Plant Biologist is a photographic project that disseminates plant biology research, while seeks to break the negative stereotypes associated with this job. The word “secret” is not because we have something to hide, but mainly because the broader public does not know exactly what we are doing and what we are in real life. 

The project encompasses a photographic exhibition about the everyday life of young researchers inside and outside the laboratory, a series of interviews addressing myths and truths surrounding plant biologists, and a web page dedicated to the world of research in the field of plant biotechnology.
