Center of Molecular Biology and Pharmacogenetics
Mission and Objectives
The mission of the center is to contribute to the development of knowledge and transfer of technologies in different areas related to the genetic basis of priority diseases, cardiovascular pharmacogenetics and identification of active principles of native flora with potential therapeutic action.
The group's objectives are to develop scientific research, disseminate knowledge through publications, applied research for developing patents, advanced human capital formation and effective links with the production sector
Some Specific objectives
Short-term objectives are to increase the rate of impact of publications generated by the group, increase the number of scientific publications, to transfer the knowledge generated to the community and increase the number of postgraduate theses.
In the medium term, the group aims to establish an effective link with the production sector through research on topics of interest to industry. Furthermore, it is of interest to establish and strengthen research partnerships and exchanges with international groups.
In the long term the Molecular Biology and Pharmacogenetics group of Universidad de La Frontera is expected to become a point of reference in research and postgraduate work, both nationally and internationally.
