Dr Phil Mayer, President of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS), recently visited the University of Sydney's student chapter at the Faculty of Pharmacy, to present on his work with Pfizer and on his pharmacokinetics background.

The AAPS provides a dynamic international forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists to enhance their contributions to health. The organization offers timely scientific programs, ongoing education, opportunities for networking, and professional development.

The University of Sydney AAPS Student Chapter's mission is to nurture pharmaceutical education and research and increase awareness of the latest advances in pharmaceutical sciences. The Chapter also aims to provide scientific and professional development opportunities for its members, as well as raise awareness about the AAPS and its importance in the university as well as in Australia.

Recent events include the networking evening jointly hosted by the Monash University and University of Sydney AAPS student chapters at the APSA conference, held in Brisbane from the 6-9 December 2010. Students were treated to a buffet dinner and a night of fun activities at the Plough Inn Tavern in South Brisbane. Approximately 40 students, including AAPS members and students presenting/attending the conference and a number of academics attended the evening.

"We are delighted with the successes of the past year" said Chapter secretary Ritu Jaiswal. "Hopefully 2011 will be another productive year for the Chapter and we would encourage any students involved in pharmaceutical and medical sciences to join in our events and register."
