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. 

Our Vision is a world where all patients and health professionals make wise therapeutic decisions in their use of medicines.
