It is my pleasure to invite you to the AMSPC Annual Meeting, a conference dedicated to the challenges facing academic leaders in Pharmacology.  The meeting will take place on January 27-31, 2025, in San Jose, Costa Rica at the Marriott Hacienda Belen Hotel.  We welcome conference participation by the leadership of Pharmacology units within schools of medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and public health.

Like in previous AMSPC meetings, the conversations with colleagues at the beach are sometimes just as important as the programming in the conference room, and you will have plenty of time in both settings.  We have a number of new initiatives including new awards and new faculty mentoring sessions. This is in addition to the other pre-existing activities ranging from Washington and ASPET updates.  We have also planned exciting social activities too!

If you have attended an AMSPC meeting previously, you already know the value of talking with your academic cohorts and sharing their strategies for leadership.  If you have never attended, you are overdue for this important networking and career development opportunity, and we are ready to help.  I hope you will be able to join us in January for a stimulating meeting in this spectacular setting.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions about AMSPC or its annual meeting.

Special Thanks to our Sponsors
