Word of Welcome
On behalf of all members of the South African Society for Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (SASBCP) we are delighted to invite you to the 17th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (WCP2014) to be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town, South Africa from 13-18 July 2014.
The IUPHAR world congresses foster basic and clinical pharmacological sciences. As it is the first time this event will be held on the African continent, the organising committee is excited to bring a uniquely African experience to this global event. We have no doubt that the opportunity to connect with world leaders in pharmacology, industry and thought leaders in a memorable location defines WCP2014 as an event of scientific excellence not to be missed.
The SASBCP was established in 1966 and over the years has grown into a national society that truly serves the pharmacological sciences in South Africa and the African continent. As a strong, competitive scientific community at the tip of Africa, we take great pride in playing an active, continental and international role. We are committed to fostering pharmacology amongst our young scientists and promoting the field across Africa. The 'Pharmacology for Africa' (PharfA) initiative has become the vehicle to developed pharmacology on the African continent.
The city of Cape Town is an ideal destination for WCP2014 in South Africa. It lies at the foot of Table Mountain, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Heralded by many as one of the world's most beautiful cities, we know visitors will be suitably impressed by its cultural heritage and natural beauty. This is an opportunity to experience the latest discoveries in pharmacology in an internationally renowned tourism destination. We believe WCP2014 will be a memorable experience.
