- Pharmacological Research
- Regolatory Sciences
- Ethical and safe use of pharmaceutical products
The activities of the Gianni Benzi Foundation are directed to strengthen research in the pharmacological and biomedical field, with particular reference to rare diseases or those affecting populations with specific therapeutic needs, including elderly and children.
The Gianni Benzi Foundation provides ‘High level’ training activities in the regulatory field with the aim to foster a continuous multi-specialistic update on the complex procedures that characterise the European Pharmaceutical System, of which the European Medicines Agency (EMA) represents the cornerstone.
A special attention is dedicated to the effects deriving from the tumultuous progress of biomedical sciences and, consequently, the appearance of new innovative products for human use.
Starting from the experience gained in the pharmaceutical field, the Foundation also extends its interest to the field of food and «devices».
The safe use of pharmaceutical products for human use, with particular reference to innovative medicinal products and foods, is an important aspect of the Gianni Benzi Foundation’s activities. Such attention is justified for numerous reasons, such as globalisation and the rapid expansion of the market for new food and medicinal products, and new biomedical technologies that require safety methods that are always more sophisticated. In this context, the Foundation focuses its attention also on the risks arising from the improper use or abuse of such products both in current practice and, above all, in sport, where such usage represents the most widespread and damaging form of doping.
