Conference on "Institutions and drugs" within the cycle of conferences "From memory: history, medicine and science in the time of the Viceroyalties"
Today, Monday, March 21 at 19:30 p.m. The second session of the cycle of conferences "From memory: history, medicine and science in the time of the Viceroyalties" organized by the Health Sciences Foundation will take place in the Auditorium of the International Institute.
The session called "Institutions and drugs" will be presented and moderated by Mr. Alberto Gomis Blanco and will include the following communications:
-“The introduction in Europe of American medicines”. By Ms. Maria Luz López Terrada.
CSIC scientific researcher. Institute of History of Medicine and Science "López Piñero"
-"Health and Science in colonial Peru". By Mr. Antonio González Bueno. Department of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Technology. Pharmacy faculty. Complutense University of Madrid
The Health Sciences Foundation once again organizes the cycle "From Memory" which aims to study the situation of health and science in different historical stages. On this occasion it is dedicated to the Viceroyalties, administrative representations that the Spanish crown established due to the distances of its possessions.
In the case of the Indies, the Viceroyalties of New Spain, Peru, New Granada and the Río de la Plata developed from the XNUMXth century. Although some have been known to the public for their magnificence, less is known about the scientific and health advances that were carried out in their territories. Historians of science will analyze these advances in an expeditionary trip around what today constitutes the Latin American and Caribbean regions.
Free entry until complete seats.
