Implementation of a state of the art reference center for pharmaceutical and pharmacological studies in Cuba to support the use of natural product formulations composed of indigenous phytomedicinal and nutraceutical molecules.

The project aims to establish a multidisciplinary reference platform at CIDEM with improved capacity (infrastructure+ know-how/training) in natural drug research and development, which integrates preparation of plant extracts, extraction and purification, analytical and structural characterization, molecular pharmacological evaluation and design and evaluation of appropriate systems of drug delivery, which allows pharmaceutical and pharmacological studies of phytomedicinal and nutraceutical products according to international standards, to stimulate the use of natural products in the National System of Health (NSH) in Cuba.
