Promoting the bonds between students, researchers and professionals of the field of health with the world of the biopharmaceutical industry is the main challenge of the Summer School on Medicines (SSM), one of the most innovative training approaches in the field of pharmacy, in which the University of Barcelona is taking part through the Institute of Biomedicine of the UB (IBUB), led by Professor Marçal Pastor-Anglada, from the Faculty of Biology.

 

From the first idea to the commercialization of future drugs

The Summer School on Medicines wants to cover the value chain in drug development –from the first idea until the moment they get to the market- through the experience of leading research centers, business knowledge and management of pharmaceutical industries and the view of administrations.

During that week, those who attend the SSM will participate in one of the most innovative spaces of the field of the synthesis and discovery of new drugs. The program includes presentations by experts, studies of successful cases, entrepreneurship issues, intellectual property, access to market, seminars, and visits to companies and research institutes with professionals from different countries of the European Union and Latin America.

In search of new drugs in a global world

The tenth edition of the Summer School on Medicines (SSM10), which was held in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo, in Ribeirão Preto (Brasil), was organized by the UB, Biocat, University of Montreal (Canada) and the Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse, France), in collaboration with the Barcelona Science Park (PCB). Within the framework of the program, the lecturer Xavier Barril, from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences and IBUB, and member of the Research Group on Computational Biology and Drug Design, gave one of the conferences.

So far, the editions of SSM have been held in Barcelona, Montreal, Toulouse and now for the first time, in São Paulo. Now, Montreal, Toulouse and Barcelona are the ones to hold the upcoming calls.
