2ND INTERNATIONAL HIPS SYMPOSIUM - June 28th 2012
ON PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES DEVOTED TO INFECTION RESEARCH
AIM OF THE HIPS SYMPOSIUM
The HIPS Symposium aims at bringing together renown scientists and young investigators from three pharmaceutical communities: natural products, medicinal chemistry and drug delivery. It provides a forum for senior scientists to exchange ideas while crossing borders of classical disciplines. At the same time it gives young investigators the chance to get valuable feedback on their projects by international experts in the respective fields. HIPS intents to establish the HIPS Symposium as creative meeting with a regular place in the schedule of leading pharmacists in Europe and beyond.
The Symposium takes place on Thursday, 28.06.2012 from 09:00 to 19:00h on Campus of Saarland University, Aula, building A3.3.
It will comprise plenary lectures by invited speakers, short presentations from HIPS collaborators and a poster session with flash presentations.
