The Australasian Pharmaceutical Science Association (APSA) is a professional society for individuals with an interest in the pharmaceutical sciences and their practice. The Association strives to promote and advance the study and application of the pharmaceutical sciences and to facilitate the exchange of information and experiences between pharmaceutical scientists in Australasia. APSA also aims to promote its own education arm and to foster early career researchers through dedicated symposia at our annual conferences. APSA is a member organisation of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), a global federation representing pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists worldwide.

Membership is drawn from the Pharmacy Schools of Australia and New Zealand, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and associated government departments. Annual conferences and regular short courses provide a forum for presentation of research and development applications from all branches of the pharmaceutical sciences. APSA recognises excellence by providing several competitive awards for members at varying stages of their scientific careers. The APSA medal is our association’s highest award to recognize excellence and lasting contribution to the pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacy practice and/or pharmacy education. In addition, in recognition of the valuable contribution of our student and early career researchers, APSA provides forum, travel grants and prizes.
