The International Journal of Pharmacology and Pharma network is the perfect source for information on Pharmacology and regulatory affairs that covers education, research and management and provides excellent knowledge for practitioners, public health professionals, researchers and students that sow and reap knowledge on recent and current advancements in Pharmacology.

IJPN 2019 Will Focus on “Exploring the research advances in Pharmacology and its networks”. This offers a forum to network and interact with other healthcare professionals, earn knowledge and stay updated on the advanced innovations in the field. Our aim is to publish the highest quality research and to provide authors with rapid, fair and accurate review and publication of manuscripts falling within our scope. This journal provides the means for scientists, researchers, and postgraduates to publish original rapid communications, full papers and timely state-of-the-art reviews encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all areas of the pharmacology.

Our database lists national and international conferences, opportunities, speakers and events to customize your experience at the conference as per your preferences and interests.
