About the Group 
In 2012, Health Policy Research Center (HPRC) created Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety Group to facilitate a wide range of activities related to the use and outcomes of drugs, addressed from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. The research program is directed at several pharmaceutical, epidemiological, therapeutic, and policy aspects of chronic drug use. We follow-up on interesting and timely safety issues on an broad range of drugs, such as for example anti-viral and anti-neoplasm drugs, Antidiabetic drugs, lipid-lowering agents, antipsychotic drugs, or antihypertensive.



Our mission: 
The mission is to bring together the various specialties of Pharmaceutical Sciences, epidemiology, biostatistics, health services research, health policy and the social sciences to evaluate the effectiveness of existing and new prescription drugs in relation to their risks and safety; to study how drugs are used by physicians, patients and follow up by pharmacists; and to develop methods to optimize and utilized prescription drug use.



Our vision:
Our vision is to improve public health by enhancing the safety of marketed drugs through the development and application of Pharmacoepidemiology, drug safety and Pharmacovigilance research and to provide education on approaches to identify, assess, manage and minimize risk.



Strategic Goals
