Facultad de Medicina


Research is, together with teaching, the main activity developed by the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics. Since its foundation, the professors of the Department reached many research grants supported by public and private entities (local, national, and international) in competitive calls, as well as research contracts with several companies. This inversion leaded to more than one thousand scientific publications in international journals of pharmacology, but also in other related scientific areas.

It is worth to mention the close relationship between the Department and the Institute Teófilo Hernando for Drug I+D (Instituto Teófilo Hernando de I+D del Medicamento, ITH). This Research University Institute from UAM includes different professors of the Department of Pharmacology, sharing many teaching and research activities. Among them, a very successful initiative is the joint organization of the Research Seminars Teófilo Hernando, which are part of the formative activities of the Programme of Doctorate in Pharmacology and Physiology. Moreover, several groups of the Department are integrated in the Research Institutes IdiPAZ, IIS Princesa, Fundación de Investigación Jiménez Díaz, and Fundación de Investigación Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda, linked to the hospitals associated to the Faculty of Medicine of the UAM.

In addition to teaching and research, different professors of the Department of Pharmacology are staff of the Spanish Health National System, related to the Services of Clinical Pharmacology in the Hospital Universitario La Paz, the Hospital Universitario La Princesa, and the Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda. The corresponding research activity of these professors deals with the area of Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacoepidemiology, integrated in the Centre of Clinical Pharmacology Clinical Trial Unit and the Clinical Trial Unit from the Hospital Universitario La Princesa.

Finally, some of the professors of the Department exert forensic activities linked to justice administration.
