The Homeopathy Research Institute is an innovative international charity created to address the need for high quality scientific research in homeopathy.
HRI is dedicated to the evaluation of homeopathy, using the most rigorous scientific methods available and communicating the results of such work beyond the usual academic circles. We use our resources and expertise to foster new projects and to improve the quality of research being carried out in the field.
The HRI team – a small ‘family’ of passionate individuals – believe strongly that homeopathy research is deserving of the attention of sharp minds. The diversity of our Conference programmes reflects the broad interests of our Institute, from striving to uncover the mechanism of action of homeopathic medicines to conducting clinical research using rigorous and appropriate methods.
The HRI Conference Organising and Advisory Committees comprised individuals from a wide range of countries, organisations and backgrounds. This gave HRI the broad combination of skills and experience needed to plan the event with confidence. All submitted abstracts were peer reviewed by a panel of world experts in homeopathy research, including the HRI Scientific Advisory Committee.
