May 23 falls Clement’s birth is stable. This date was enacted in 2004 as the Day of Researchers of Science and Technology in Uruguay, by Law No. 17749.
Estable was born in 1984 in San Juan Bautista, a town in the rural area of Canillon County. Later, his family moved to Montevideo, where he began his studies as a teacher at the age of 15.
But his great profession was the biological sciences, to which he would begin to devote himself on his trip to Spain. He received a scholarship from the Institute of Histological Research of Madrid, where he worked with Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Nobel Prize in Medicine 1906). He also studied in France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Monaco.
After returning from Europe, he continued his work as the principal instructor of the Conferences of the Preliminary Technical Inspection, which later became the Laboratory of Biological and Film Sciences. The Department of Cinematography was separated from the laboratory, thus leaving the Biological Sciences Laboratory, which began with the goal of research, cultural extension, and preparation of materials for schools.
For Estable, the state must recognize that the scholar has practiced a profession of national importanceIt was his responsibility to promote science and create appropriate conditions for researchers.
He was able to realize his ambition, which would give birth to the institute we know today as the Clemente Estable Institute for Biological Research.
Currently, this public institution has been devoted to the production of scientific knowledge in various fields of biological sciences for 95 years.
Today we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the Uruguayan teacher and scientist who marked the development of national sciences: # Clementstable. His vision and perseverance led to the creation of the nation’s first biological sciences laboratory, which turns 95 this year: our institute. #string 1/9 pic.twitter.com/OaHXSS7dCl
