We're accepting submissions until Monday 11 September

We're pleased to welcome abstract submissions from across the pharmaceutical sciences, clinical and health services research for poster and Pechakucha, or oral presentation for the RPS Winter Summit 2017.

This is a fantastic opportunity to share your work with sector leaders and peers, with accepted abstracts to be published in one of two internationally recognised journals (IJPP or JPP).

Themed ‘bridging the gap between industry, academia, policy and practice’, the summit will bring to life an exciting programme of technology, data and innovations in science, research and education, with the ultimate goal of enhancing patient care.
