From discovery to health

Research is an essential endeavor at the First Faculty of Medicine. Our scientists and researchers conduct basic, translational, epidemiologic and clinical research across a broad spectrum of biomedical topics. In a tight cooperation with the General University Hospital and other partners, we bring research from “bench to bedside”.


Psychological Research

Improvement and support of Psychological Sciences

61The program is focused on the identification and rectification of weaknesses in teaching, research and clinical practice at Charles University. The second aim of the program is to create an integrative concept and framework in psychology that can support collaboration and networking in this field. The third general aim is to define and establish particular strategies and tasks for the improvement of selected cross-institutional areas/topics in psychology in theory and empirical research. The program addresses the current situation at different faculties of Charles University: different approaches to similar issues, different standards of technical equipment and facilities for research, different strategies and approaches to building research capacities and human resources management, and a low degree of mutual collaboration and motivation for networking and creating joint research and education program at Charles University and elsewhere.

Research groups from the First Faculty of Medicine that participate on this program are structured around 3 comprehensive projects:

  • Randomized Prevention Trial of the Universal Drug Prevention Intervention
  • The effect of ADHD on particular psychological functions, life-skills and quality of life among clients of therapeutic communities for addictions
  • Methodology and Policy documents
