Description: Research carried out by doctors from three consolidated groups recognized by the Generalitat, led by Matias Guiu (2009 SGR 794), Juan Verdaguer (2009 SGR 805) and Monserrat Rué (2009 SGR 632), and four other groups with a solid research trajectory endorsed by numerous publications of high impact, obtaining external funding, and direction of doctoral theses, led by Elvira Fernández, Ferran Barbé, José Reñé and José Manuel Porcel. In addition, there is an emerging group of nursing research (led by Pilar Jürschik and Juan Torres), with important international collaborations with prestigious nursing research groups (from Canada, Belgium, Holland and Finland), which develops research in the field of aging, epidemiology and education for health. Among all these groups, 15 research lines are offered, which have as object the research in the field of the clinic (study of various pathologies), pharmacology and experimental therapeutics, epidemiology, aging and education for health.
The research line focuses on the study of epidemic outbreaks, investigation of risk factors for communicable diseases, and estimation of coverage of periodic preventive activities in primary health care.
