Pharmaceutical Scientists To Meet In Boston

August 25, 1997

ALEXANDRIA, Va - (August 5, 1997) -- More than 5,000 pharmaceutical scientists will gather in Boston, Massachusetts, November 2 - 6, 1997, for the Annual Meeting and Exposition of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS).

This year's theme, Revolutions in Pharmaceutical Research, is especially timely in an era where scientists are making significant strides in managing chronic diseases with drugs. More than 2,000 scientists will be presenting contributed papers on a variety of topics and issues. Other program offerings include symposia on "Lipid-Based Systems for Oral Drug Delivery," "Batch Failure Investigations" and "Pulmonary Delivery of Biopharmaceuticals."

The AAPS Annual Meeting provides an ideal venue for scientists to present breakthrough research, share ideas and seek out fresh perspectives from their colleagues. Meeting attendees will also benefit from continuing education opportunities and a large supplier exposition.

AAPS is a professional scientific society of over 7,500 members employed in academia, industry, government and other public and private research institutions worldwide. The goal of AAPS is to improve human health through the development of better pharmaceuticals. AAPS members work in drug discovery, design, analysis, development, production, quality control, safety, clinical evaluation, registration, distribution, and utilization of drugs and drug delivery systems.

There is still time to make reservations to attend the AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition. For more information about the Meeting and/or AAPS, please call the Association at (703) 548-3000.
