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.
- 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.
- "Drugs to tackle a pandemic – something old and something new". This webinar will present two case studies: the repurposing of remdesivir and the development of an mRNA-based vaccine. 3 June 2021. Register here.
