Maria Margarida Caramona(Biography)
Maria Margarida Caramona is full Professor of Pharmacology in the Faculty of Pharmacy, of Coimbra University, Portugal. She has the degree in Pharmacy and the Ph.D. in Pharmacology (1985) obtained both at University of Coimbra and since 1998 is Full Professor in the Faculty of Pharmacy at the same University. The main scientific research areas were in the first years of her academic career related with the studies in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics process mainly in neuropharmacology with animal model. In the last 20 years is more devoted to clinical pharmacy and pharmaceutical care with patients data for a more rational use of drugs. She teaches the courses of pharmacology in the Pharmacy Faculty of Coimbra and is responsible for the training of the students in the community and in the hospital pharmacies during the pre-graduate career. Those particular tasks are very well supported with a very good relationship with the community and hospital pharmacists She was involved with different tasks in the Portuguese Pharmacological Society with cooperation with the British Pharmacological Society. With the European Society of Clinical Pharmacy structure being member of the Education Committee in the 90Â´s (1990-1994) and later in the General Committee between 1995 to 2000 with an active participation in the organization of 2015 ESCP Lisbon Symposia being president of the Scientific Committee were the main topic was about Medicines Information â€“ Making better decisions.
