Young Scientist Satellite Conference, 19-21 May 2017

Improving your skills for research in drug discovery, drug development and clinical usage

The world of medicines research and pharmaceutical sciences is quickly evolving with systems biology and new technology expanding our view on disease and treatment. At the core of this evolution are tomorrow’s scientists: the PhD-students and post-docs. 


The Young Scientist Satellite Conference of the PSWC is an exciting occasion for future scientists to meet, discuss and present their science in many forms such as oral sessions, poster sessions and workshops. This will also be an opportunity to gain knowledge from the experts attending the Pharmaceutical Sciences World Congress.

Please note that registration for this conference is only possible in addition to a registration for the PSWC.

The YSC will take place in Uppsala, home to the oldest university in Scandinavia, founded in 1477. This vibrant academic city possesses many historic sites as well as cutting edge research. The city is located a short train ride away from the PSWC in Stockholm.

At the YSC, young scientists will be given the opportunity to present their research in three different tracks:

  • Fundamental & translational science and targeting sciences
  • Drug delivery, formulation and manufacturing sciences
  • Regulatory sciences and science-based practice

In addition to these tracks, there will be workshops where you as an attendee will be provided with training that can sharpen your skills and help you towards successful research. By discussing pressing issues with your peers and key people in medicines research we hope that you, the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists, will be given the tools to tackle the challenges of the future.
