The Seedbed for Research in Self-medication Behavior emerged in the Psychology Program of the University of Rosario in 2016, under the direction of Professor Franklin Soler. It became a very important undergraduate educational research space, which gave rise to the growth of the Observatory of Self-medication Behavior of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, in the same institution. This stage culminated in the pandemic. In the new post-pandemic stage, the seedbed is reborn with growth perspective in several ways: towards other programs of the School, for example, Medicine.
Also with international perspective, thanks to the support of the researcher Jorge Molina Aguilar (El Salvador), who directs the Semillero from 2023. Finally, with the aim of becoming not only a generator of new knowledge but also of new interventions on this complex phenomenon of global public health.
