The International Conference on Scientific Frontiers in Natural Product Based Drugs 2017 (SFNPBD 2017), co-organised by the Department of Pharmacology, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, and the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science, National University of Singapore, together with the Pharmacological Society (Singapore) [PSS] was a great success.
More than 200 participants from all around the world attended SFNPBD 2017 held from 6-7 July 2017 at the Clinical Research Centre Auditorium, National University of Singapore. Participants came from all over the world including the USA, Ireland, France, Sudan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, Korea, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. During the closing ceremony, awards were presented to ten poster presenters, seven oral presenters and the inaugural Pharmacological Society (Singapore) Award was presented to A/Prof Gautam Sethi for his outstanding contributions to cancer pharmacology research.
The PSS thanks all the excellent speakers and poster presenters, all the conference participants, and the organising committee for making this conference a great success. In particular, we thank the many dedicated support staff and students from the Department of Pharmacology and Department of Pharmacy who worked long and hard to ensure the smooth running of the conference. Without their hard work, often behind the scenes and unseen, this conference would not have been possible.
