Mexico: A global power in scientific production

By Elliot Bullman

Mexico ranks second in scientific production in Latin America, according to the head of the Coordinating Commission of National Institutes of Health and High Specialty Hospitals, Guillermo Ruiz-Palacios.

He pointed out that the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) is the most important academic centre in the country, with 4,159 researchers in the National System of Researchers (SNI) of the National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt).

This is followed by the Conacyt Public Research Centers and the Health System, with 1,661, and fourth is the National Polytechnic Institute, the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM) and other entities.

The official said that the National Institutes of Health and high-specialty hospitals have 1,318 SNI researchers, compared to 324 from the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) and 19 from the ISSSTE.

He noted that the amounts required to promote the creation of a consortium to strengthen technologies and innovations for the improvement of health will depend on the innovations generated, but the initiative could start with five or 10 million dollars and increase exponentially as health institutes and research centre are integrated.

The consortium will start working with research projects in areas such as orthopaedics, cardiology, nutrition, immunology and diagnostic, and hoped that next year 10 or 20 innovations will be ready.
