“Attending the International Conference of Pharmaceutical Medicine (ICPM) is an outstanding opportunity to learn about the news trends in pharmaceutical medicine and medicines development, besides networking with world class faculty from academia, pharmaceutical companies, and government officials in a friendly environment.

Since 2006, in Seoul, I have attended all ICPMs. Being in Tokyo this year, attending the latest ICPM, I am still thrilled about how Pharmaceutical Medicine can motivate people from all parts of the world to get together and discuss the Future of Medicines Development. Hope you don´t miss the ICPMs in the coming years.”
