Dear Colleague,


It is a pleasure to announce the 21st Forum of Pharmaceutical Sciences, a scientific event that has become a real tradition for all PhD students and researchers active in one of the research fields within Pharmaceutical Sciences.

As on all previous occasions, young researchers will be given the opportunity to present their work through oral communications, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

At this two-day event, plenary lectures by renowned researchers will offer a good opportunity to learn on specific aspects of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

For this edition, we are back at Floreal in Blankenberge at the Belgian seaside. The Forum will take place on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 April 2023, two full days that should allow sufficient speaking time for all participants.


We hope we can count on every single one of you to actively contribute to this Edition of the Forum of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
