It is a great pleasure to invite you to Foz do Iguacu, Brazil for the 48th Brazilian Congress of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics and the 21st Latin American Congress of Pharmacology in 04-07 October 2016, Rafain Hotel Convention Centre. The Congress will be hosted by the Brazilian Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (SBFTE).
The theme of the congress is Pharmacology in Latin America: Drug discovery for the future. The members of the Brazilian and Latin-American Societies in Pharmacology, the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee are taking great care to design a programme that combines hot topics in pharmacology. Members of the Young Investigator’s Committee are also helping us to organize meeting activities targeting trainees and young pharmacologists, which definitely will open opportunities to improve their careers, and build long-lasting relationships with fellows and senior scientists for individual growth and career’s planning. The language of the meeting will be English.
Outstanding scientists have been confirmed as keynote speakers, including Salvador Moncada, (The University of Manchester, UK), Arthur Christopoulos (Monash University, Australia), Alberto Mantovani (Research Humanitas, Italy). We will be delighted to welcome attendees, speakers, partners, sponsors and exhibitors to join us for this meeting.
In 2016 we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of our society, and it will be a great pleasure for us to celebrate together in Foz do Iguaçu. Special Congress Events and pre- and post-Congress scientific activities will be announced soon.
The Rafain Palace Hotel has a modern convention center with meeting rooms for ongoing simultaneous scientific sessions, exhibition hall for poster exhibitor-hosted sessions, and networking places to meet with your colleagues.
The congress web site ( www.sbfte.org.br/congressos/2016/ ) is active and all the announcements will be available through this web page. Deadlines for abstract submission and registration are already available.
Foz do Iguaçu is situated at the borders of Brazil, Argentine and Paraguay being well known for its natural beauty and proximity to the Iguassu National Park where one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World is located: the famous Iguassu Falls.
