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 2017 will see the 8th APS International PharmSci Conference returning to the De Havilland Campus of the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield. The theme of the conference in 2017 is 'Pharmaceutical Science without borders'.

The APS is pleased to announce Professor Abdul Basit as this year's Conference Science Chair.

Professor Basit is Professor of Pharmaceutics at the School of Pharmacy, University College London, where he leads a research group investigating drug delivery to the gastrointestinal tract.

"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 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.
