Our researchers follow the principle that rules Universidad Panamericana: To be at the service of others with solid training and responsibility.
Their commitment translates into six basic rules:
- To encourage the culture of applied and interdisciplinary research by taking advantage of technological advances
- To adapt technological systems into educational principles in order to enhance the learning process.
- To encourage students’ critical thinking through problem solving, analysis and research.
- To carry out debates about today’s problems from diverse perspectives
- To promote research within interdisciplinary groups.
- To have class topics and discussions that address the challenges of a globalized world.
In 2007, Universidad Panamericana researchers offered 197 lectures and attended 166 academic events.
The research of our Professors is made known through specialized journals and other publications and media; that is why their viewpoints are well-known.
Doctor Jose Luis Ortiz, Dean of the Communication School, due to his most recent research about the role of the Radio during the Second World War, was invited by an important New York radio broadcaster to present its most recent findings for the American audience.
In the neurological field, our School of Medicine has been involved in the research of cell regeneration applied to the cure for Parkinson’s syndrome.
At the Philosophy School, under the leadership of Dr. Virginia Aspe, a team of researchers has focused on novo-Hispanic philosophy and has developed a research project that launched The First Ibero-American Encounter of Novo-Hispanic Philosophy, which, in 2007, gathered specialists from Spain, the United States and Mexico.
