Medical Research in Argentina – Clinical Trials in Latin America

Argentina is a country with a long history of medical research and a thriving scientific community. Researchers in Argentina have made important contributions to a wide range of fields, including cancer research, infectious disease, and neuroscience.

In this blog, we will explore the history of medical research in Argentina, the current state of the field, and some of the exciting research happening in the country today.

History of Medical Research in Argentina

The history of medical research in Argentina dates back to the 19th century when the first medical schools were established in Buenos Aires. In 1822, the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Buenos Aires was founded, and it became one of the leading medical schools in the country.

In the early 20th century, Argentinean scientists began to make significant contributions to the field of infectious disease research. In 1928, Argentinean physician Bernardo Houssay discovered the role of the pituitary gland in regulating blood sugar levels, which later earned him a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1947.

Argentinean virologist Luis Federico Leloir also won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1970 for his work on the biosynthesis of carbohydrates.
