Strategic Focus

We ensure excellence in the treatment, care and education of dermatological patients through basic and clinical research in dermatology. In addition, we work in search of new drugs of natural products with biological activity and basic and clinical mycology. This in order to contribute to the progress of the country through the generation of new knowledge with scientific and social value. Also, through the creation of new cooperation networks, the transference of knowledge through the training of new researchers, and the dissemination of knowledge and results to society. 

Research Areas and Topics

  • Biological Activity of Natural Products.              
  • Dermatology and Clinical Dermato-Epidemiology.
  • Infectious skin diseases.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Good health and well-being Quality Education Industry innovation and infraestructure
