Building a bridge to Asian pharmaceutical sciences

DRA symposium

Development of pharmaceutical sciences requires global cooperation networks. Both academic institutions and companies operating in the pharmaceutical area need exposure to science and culture at an international level. This is crucial for small countries, such as Denmark. This symposium will introduce the work of three academics with a special knowledge about Asian pharmaceutical sciences. It is expected that this event will foster and facilitate globalization of pharmaceutical sciences.
