New generation of pharmaceutical scientists special interest group

At an international level, this special interest group (SIG) provides a unique opportunity to develop future pharmaceutical scientists, through exchange of research and global networking. The group focuses on the development of young scientists (MS/PhD students, postdocs, and early-career scientists) with consideration of undergraduate/post-graduate curricula, including research dissemination, professional/career development, leadership and mentorship for future leaders, in various settings such as academia, industry, and government.

New generation of pharmaceutical scientists

Our goals are to:
  • Establish a FIP platform for international exchange among young pharmaceutical scientists and young pharmacy researchers;
  • Enhance cross-disciplinary activities with non-pharmacy professions;
  • Enable effective outreach activities to pharmaceutical science communities during the formative years;
  • Stimulate communication, networking and collaboration with other FIP and non-FIP groups of young people (e.g., YPG, IPSF) including pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists for advancement of best practice (i.e. development and use of new medicinal products, pharmaceutical services);
  • Serve as a platform for mentorship of future leaders in pharmaceutical sciences with a global vision;
  • Increase young researchers’ contributions to global health through greater access to the latest high-quality research outputs in pharmaceutical sciences.
