The theme of the conference in 2017 is 'Pharmaceutical Science without borders'.

"I am delighted to be Chairing the 8th APS International PharmSci
Conference 2017 at the University of Hertfordshire, where our focus this year is "Pharmaceutical Science
without Borders". Pharmaceutical science transcends a multitude of borders - it is very much an international field,
collaborative in nature and underpins medicines development. The healthcare challenges we face today are global,
and cannot be addressed in isolation. Our aim in this conference is to connect, empower and inspire those of you
across the pharmaceutical sciences sector and beyond; to broaden your research goals and horizons alongside showcasing
pragmatic approaches to trouble-shooting/problem-solving in the pharmaceutical sciences.
I look forward to welcoming you to what will no doubt be a fascinating and intellectually stimulating event."
The Conference offers the opportunity to attend sessions organised by leading pharmaceutical scientists and
also sessions specifically for new scientists, postgraduates and undergraduate pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences students.
You can become part of this conference now, by reserving the date, or offering a
poster presentation. The conference offers outstanding network opportunities with the pharmaceutical
industry and academia. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The Conference will include plenary speakers, award lectures and
parallel science sessions. The conference exhibition will feature around 40 stands and runs in parallel
with the poster sessions, which have attracted well over 300 posters in previous years. As well as the
informal networking, the conference also provides two major networking opportunities, the Black Tie Dinner on the Tuesday evening
and a drinks reception in the newly-opened Science Centre on the Wednesday evening.
