DISCIPLINE PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS AND PATENTS
START 2019
DEGREE Doctorate
DESCRIPTION This course aims to provide information on how to obtain financing through partnerships with private national and international companies. It offers information on how to prepare and submit projects, as well as which companies develop research related to the research lines of the graduate program. In the face of reduced public investment, public-private partnerships are an important way of maintaining research excellence at public universities. Likewise, it guarantees technological innovation, in order to obtain the patenting of medicines, supplies and materials that may be developed during research.

DISCIPLINE SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND METANALYSIS
START 2012
DEGREE Doctorate/Master
DESCRIPTION Systematic review is a scientific research methodology that seeks to gather the results of multiple primary studies, using strategies that limit bias and random errors. These strategies consist of extensive research of all relevant studies and the use of explicit and reproducible criteria in the critical selection and evaluation of the studies identified. When the results of the studies are summarized, but are not statistically combined, the review is called qualitative systematic. When the systematic review uses statistical methods to combine the results of two or more studies, it is called a quantitative systematic review or meta-analysis.
