As Chair of the Conference Organising Committee, I would like to invite you to the 53rd Annual Conference of the South African Society for Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (SASBCP), hosted by the University of Pretoria; at the tranquil Kievits Kroon Country Estate near Pretoria, 5th-7th October 2019.
The theme for the conference “Broadening horizons in pharmacology” is fitting as it encompasses the vision of Pharmacologists from a South African perspective, which is essential to improve our footprint on a continental and global scale. This provides a forum for bringing academia and industry closer together.
The Scientific Committee is planning a diverse program with lectures by many eminent national speakers. The themed sessions will provide a great opportunity for participants to engage in formal and informal dialogue pertaining to the most recent advances in the fundamental and applied clinical and regulatory fields of pharmacology.
I trust that participants from all academic institutions will attend, to ensure cohesiveness in the pursuit of our common goal in ensuring the advancement of pharmacology; in the country, our continent and abroad.
We look forward to welcoming you at this event.
Chair: Conference Organising Committee
