Strategic Focus

The Toxinology, Therapeutic and Food Alternatives Group is committed to generating scientific knowledge on poisons of natural origin, their toxins, and their applications in order to find alternatives for treating and preventing the poisoning they cause. Additionally, it is committed to research on molecules or products of pharmaceutical, food-related, and agricultural interest.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Epidemiological–clinical line.
  • Toxinological line.
  • Food and therapeutic alternatives line.
  • Bioecological line.
