17/06/2016

The University of Barcelona successfully held a course of the International Summer School at the University of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates). This course results from a collaboration agreement between the University of Barcelona and the University of Sharjah and it is the first summer school of the University of Barcelona in Spain.
The course “Medicinal plants: biodiversity and health” took place last April at the Centre of Continuing Education and Professional Development of the University of Sharjah with the participation of 43 students coming from the different Emirates.

It was a 20 hour course, valid for 2 ECTS credits and coordinated by the lecturer Francisco Pérez García from the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutic Chemistry of the University of Barcelona and with the participation of the lecturer Sameh Soliman, from the Department of Medical Chemistry of the University of Sharjah.

The content of the course is about medicinal plants from a medical perspective based on scientific evidence and it involves general aspects on quality, safety and efficiency of the vegetal drugs as well as the uses for several pathology treatments.

The Vice-Rector of International Policy of the University of Barcelona, Doctor Maria Callejón, highlighted that this pioneer international project came out as a result of the meeting between the two rectors and the signed agreement between the universities. The lecturer Marc Ruiz-Zorrilla Cruzate, coordinator of the International Summer School, said that “this initiative is expected to continue in this and other countries” of the Gulf.
