World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology 2018 | July 1 – 6 | Japan

The 18th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, titled “Pharmacology for the Future” will be held at Kyoto International Conference Centre, Kyoto, Japan.

First WCP was held at Stockholm, Sweden in 1961. IUPHAR congresses are hosted by IUPHAR member societies. The location of each future congress is determined eight years in advance by a vote of the delegates, selected by the IUPHAR member societies, during the General Assembly held every four years in conjunction with a congress. Thereby the next congress, WCP-2022 will be held at Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Also not to forget that Indian Pharmacological Society is a member of IUPHAR.

I had attended the previous congress, WCP-2014 held at Cape Town, South Africa and IUPHAR acknowledged my research work on diabetes and sponsored me bursaries of Zar.3000 (worth INR 18,000 then) and made my conference registration completely free (worth of INR 30,000 | Zar.5000). I owe this to my alma mater, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University, Mangalore and to my mentors Dr. Sheetal Ullal and Dr. Ashok Shenoy. In my next post, I will share my experiences at WCP-2014 and will also give you few tips on tapping the bursaries. So do follow us!
