The FTH has a strong vocation to gradually become an international reference center for the discovery and development of new medicines. To this end, the FTH has been working closely with the Instituto Teófilo Hernando R&D of Medicines/Drugs (ITH), a research institute of the UAM. The ITH mainly develops basic and preclinical research in pharmacology. For this reason, there is great complementarity between the two institutions, as the ITH carries out preclinical research and the FTH is dedicated to clinical trials. Hence, our vision focuses on joining efforts between the ITH and the FTH (currently known as IFTH) to create and develop a Comprehensive Medicine Center, a mixed FTH-UAM center, located on the UAM Campus.
At the same time, we seek to become a renowned institution in the academic sector oriented towards R&D. At the FTH we are increasingly known for our high quality standards in the training of new professionals in all stages of medicines/drug R%D. We have the objective to be a benchmark in the framework of research-oriented training, not only in the university education sector but also in inter-company training (continuous training) and capacity building of professionals within the international public sector.
