The British Pharmacological Society will host the 19th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (WCP2023) on behalf of the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (IUPHAR) in Glasgow, Scotland, on 2-7 July 2023. It’s your passport to a world of cutting-edge science, and unmissable career opportunities in the city named the first European Capital of Culture.

The WCP2023 programme features a range of scientific sessions underpinned by excellent science and promotes collaboration, innovation, and discovery. We have a fantastic line-up of 484 speakers and chairs from 36 countries, including 24 keynote speakers selected by the WCP2023 International Scientific Committee, each renowned for their expertise and leadership in pharmacology. There will be various symposia, keynote lectures, workshops, and debates across ten content themes. In addition, there will be a packed schedule of abstract presentations (oral and poster), interactive debates, networking opportunities, and a social programme that will allow attendees to catch up with friends and colleagues and enjoy just some of the wonders of Scotland.

In addition to the programme, the Congress Committee has launched a call for satellite meetings. They are accepting proposals for independent meetings that will complement the themes and topics covered in the main Congress programme. Satellite meetings can be either pre-Congress and held on Saturday 1 July or Sunday 2 July 2023 or post-Congress from 2 pm on Friday 7 July 2023.

The deadline for satellite meeting proposals is Friday, 6 January 2023. Please read the guidelines and submit your proposal.

IUPHAR World Congresses have been held in various countries since 1961. WCPs aim to bring together the diverse pharmacological community from around the world to share science, spark debate, support each other, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.

The 2023 host, the British Pharmacological Society, is a membership charity with a mission to promote and advance the whole spectrum of pharmacology. Since its foundation in 1931, the Society has led the way in the research and application of pharmacology and now consists of around 4,000 members from over 60 countries.

The Society’s chosen tagline of WCP2023 is ‘Collaborate, Innovate, Discover.’

Collaborate – Bringing you face to face with your diverse community, from student pharmacologists to the world’s leading authorities

Innovate –Dedicated exhibition space, sessions, and interactive workshops, there is no better way to introduce the newest methods, ideas, and teaching tools to a global audience
