The 7th APS International PharmSci 2016
Pharmaceutical Sciences: Improving World Health

APS International PharmSci is the leading UK Pharmaceutical Science conference and has firmly established itself as the premier pharmaceutical science event in the UK.

5-7 September 2016 will see the 7th APS International PharmSci Conference moving to the newly-opened Technology & Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. The conference will follow in Scotland’s rich heritage in the Sciences, Mathematics and Technology which has left a proud trail of famous scientists to inspire and encourage others to follow in their footsteps. The theme of the conference in 2016 is 'Pharmaceutical Sciences: Improving World Health'.

Professor Yvonne Perrie, who is Professor in Drug Delivery is the Conference science chair for our 7th APS conference. Yvonne is an eminent fellow of the APS, and fellow of the RPS and Society of Biology. Her research on formulation attributes that govern the mechanism of action of particulate systems for drug delivery, vaccine adjuvanticity and diagnostics, provides the foundation for practical solutions and realistic options to enhance patient care on a global scale.

"It gives me great please to invite you to join us at the 7th APS International PharmSci Conference 2016, with the theme ‘Pharmaceutical sciences: Improving World Health’. This year we have the fantastic opportunity to host our conference within the Technology & Innovation Centre, Strathclyde University, Glasgow. Opened by the Queen in July 2015, the TIC provides us an excellent environment to share our science, network, and strengthen our pharmaceutical science community. The aim of this conference is to harness our combined expertise across the pharmaceutical sciences sector and to exploit the rich heritage of Glasgow as a City of Science so that together we can develop new ideas, strategies and collaborations to tackle our healthcare needs locally, nationally and internationally. I look forward to welcoming you to our APS meeting, hearing of your new research and ideas and seeing new collaborations develop and translate into high-impact research.

See you soon in Glasgow,
Yvonne"

The UK’s competitive edge in the pharmaceutical sciences lies in its high quality pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities and its expertise in the development of innovative medicinal products and delivery systems. If the UK is to continue to produce world-leading medicines that tackle global health issues we need to further invest in our capabilities. The Conference will provide a forum to help achieve this aim. The Conference also offers the opportunity to attend sessions organised 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 info@apsgb.org for further information.

The Conference will include plenary speakers, award lectures and parallel science sessions. The conference exhibition will feature 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, with a Civic Reception on the Monday evening and the Black Tie Dinner on the Tuesday evening.
