The existence of a critical mass of talented scientists in thefields of Biophysics and Neurobiology in Latin America gave impetus to efforts to foster cooperation at the regional level... The candidacy of the Instituto de Investigaciones Bioquímicas de Bahía Blanca (INIBIBB) for this Chair was strongly supported by the Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile, the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Faculty of Medicine, Universidad de Chile, and the Department of Biochemistry, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil... A key aspect of the request was the commitment of the designated Chair to capitalize on the existence of the first-rate laboratories in the region, making more efficient use of their teaching resources for the benefit of further education in these fields throughout Latin America... This proposal was aimed at providing a competitive alternative to the classical format of postgraduate students leaving for extended training in the Northern hemisphere, a scheme which more often than not results in the permanent emigration of the students... Offering South American students, particularly those from scientifically less well-endowed countries, the opportunity to benefit from high quality training of international standard in laboratories in the region emerged as a viable option to retain talent...

After four years of negotiations between UNESCO and the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, the UNESCO Chair of Biophysics and Molecular Neurobiology was formally created in 1998... The Chair is the first UNESCO programme in Argentina in the fieldof Biophysics and Molecular Neurobiology and builds on the initial efforts to foster cooperation in this area, aimed at maximizing the regional pool ofexpertise through the exchange of specialists of international standing and the training of students from all Latin America, thus laying the basis for a regular flow of South-South cooperation such that other developing countries might benefit.
