Bernardo A. Houssay Library

The Bernardo A. Houssay Library is a thriving nodal point for the exchange of knowledge, where curiosity, collaboration, and social gatherings of the Institute’s community are encouraged, science is disseminated; communication and training events are held as well as networking meetings organized by IBYME or other academic and scientific institutions.

Our efforts are motivated and empowered by tradition, collaborative work, and the defense of open access and the integration of diversity.

Disciples of Bernardo Houssay, such as Dr. Virgilio Foglia and Dr. Eduardo Charreau, have bequeathed publications and books to the library.
