The role of the pharmaceutics has a strong clinical component. In daily clinical practice, the pharmacist's role is growing in importance, with a growing demand for pharmacists' participation in clinical research, given its ability to integrate different transversal skills such as physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, evidence-based medicine, biostatistics, among others.
