on pharmaceutical sciences devoted to infection research

HIPS symposium The HIPS symposium 2023 will take place in the form of a 1-day meeting. The symposium brings together renowned scientists and young investigators from three pharmaceutical communities: natural products, medicinal chemistry and drug delivery.

All lectures will also be broadcasted for remote participants.
