    • Focus
  • The International School of Pharmacology “Teófilo Hernando” of the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP) took this name to honour the memory of Professor Teófilo Hernando who, at the beginning of the XX century, introduced pharmacology as an academic subject and as a science at Spanish University. The School was started in 1996. Since then, 16 editions on different medical themes have been run. This XVII edition is monographically dedicated to frontier therapeutic and biomarker discoveries in chronic diseases focusing on purinergic signalling.

    Classically, the School is organised in 10 morning sessions in which renowned international scientists participate as speakers. In the afternoon sessions, 24 young researchers present short communications followed by ample discussions, on their predoctoral or postdoctoral work. This 17th edition focuses on early pathogenic features and therapeutic aspects of chronic diseases in particular brain diseases. The interest in early diagnosis and in finding a therapy that delays disease progression are central stage of this School. The enormous burden of brain diseases to society is growing due to population ageing. Thus, we expect that deep analysis of frontier knowledge and live debates, two characteristics of this School, will shed light on pathogenic mechanisms and the therapeutic perspectives to mitigate such burden to patients and their families.

    ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY “MENÉNDEZ PELAYO” (UIMP)
    UIMP was created on August 23, 1932 as a result of the approval of a foundational decree proposed by the Minister for Public Education and Arts, Fernando de los Rios. Courses started in 1933 under the leadership of Ramón Menéndez Pidal and Blas Cabrera from 1934 to 1936 and the poet Pedro Salinas as Secretary General. This could explain the strong emphasis in humanities and Spanish language courses as well as in political, economical and social sciences of UIMP. However, the summer programme has also traditionally hosted advanced courses in physics, chemistry, mathematics, medical and other sciences.

    In the 1940s the University adopted its current name after Marcelino Menéndez Pelayo, a Spanish historian born in Santander, where the most traditional and famous campus of this University is located. The “Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo” (UIMP) was created to foster a better relationship between professors and doctoral and postdoctoral students, during summer courses that lasted several weeks and at its earlier time, during the whole summer. The idea was to create an informal atmosphere for discussion and analysis of different topics in the frontier of knowledge. This strongly contributed to the intellectual maturation of young students as well as to the development of a critical and liberal attitude toward problems and people, in an atmosphere of open spirit and intellectual relevance.

    During the last decades UIMP has diversified the type of courses and activities, of short (few days, one week) and longer duration (weeks to months) and has recently established PhD programmes in collaboration with the National Research Council (CSIC) and other private and public institutions. Eighty years after its foundation, the UIMP is still a benchmark in the Spanish educational arena. UIMP has different campuses throughout Spain and courses are held along the year. UIMP directly depends on the Spanish Ministry of Education that elects its Rector among renowned University Professors (for more information visit UIMP site). The most famous campus of UIMP is La Magdalena Palace, located in Santander, North of Spain.
