To Improve Worldwide Patient Safety 

The Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC) is an independent foundation and a centre for international service and scientific research.

Our priorities are the safety of patients and the safe and effective use of medicines in every part of the world.

We meet these priorities by innovative research and development, and by providing data, reference, consultative and training resources to medicines regulatory agencies, health professionals, researchers and the pharmaceutical industry all over the world. 

UMC's Vision is to improve worldwide patient safety and welfare by reducing the risk of medicines.
