The second symposium on Pharmacology between the Chinese Pharmacological Society (CPS) and British Pharmacological Society (BPS) was successfully held in Shanghai during 11-12 July 2013. This symposium comprised of two sessions; State-of-art in mechanisms and treatments of neurodegenerative diseases and Recent advances in cardiovascular pharmacology. Scientists from China and the UK delivered excellent talks followed by lively discussion. We believe that this conference opened up more opportunities for future collaborations on pharmacology between CPS and BPS. The second joint symposium was sponsored and organized by CPS, which is headed by Professor GuanHua Du, a renowned pharmacologist in the field of drug discovery and development. Over the past six years, Professor Du has visited the UK several times to establish and solidify the relatioship between our two societies, and encourage collaborations between industries and universities across UK and China.
In the run up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, The Physiological Society, working with partners the British Pharmacological Society and Wiley-Blackwell, and sponsor The Gatorade Sports Science Institute, held a meeting to showcase the most recent and internationally-excellent research into the biomedical basis of elite performance.
