The first edition of the scientific Symposium When Matter Interacts with Life, in memory of Roberta Brayner, took place on November 19th 2021 in a hybrid format, at Université Paris Cité and followed live by her collaborators and friends around the world.

The Symposium was a celebration of Roberta’s scientific legacy and the impact of her research on a variety of fields. It was also an homage to her joyful and friendly personality, as it was followed by a small (due to sanitary restrictions) cocktail dinner full of shared memories and the Brazilian music she was so passionate about.
