As a result, the Institute’s remit encompasses not only all of the scientific disciplines that contribute to clinical research and public health (epidemiology, biostatistics, economy and sociology applied in the health field, environmental toxicology, clinical research methodology) but also cross-disciplinary and priority research areas as regards contemporary health issues: development of clinical research in fields that are mostly or completely overlooked by pharmaceutical research, health-environment-work relations, disabilities, analysis and evaluation of how the health system works and public health in developing countries.
