"The Society of Researchers in Pharmacy and Medicine (ILARUD)" was founded in 2008 to improve the interactions among researchers in medical and pharmaceutical areas and establish a networking platform for academics, professionals and institutions working in this field.
For this purpose, ILARUD organizes a series of international meetings titled "International Multidisciplinary Symposium on Drug Research and Development, DRD", in coordination with the pharmacy faculties in Türkiye every two years. The first DRD was held in Antalya in 2013 in collaboration with Gazi University. This event was followed by further DRD meetings in Eskişehir (2015, Anadolu University), Erzurum (2017, Atatürk University) and Malatya (2019, Inonu University) with the participation of academics, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students from related faculties, professionals of quality control units of private institutions, the drug industry and public institutions from around the region and across the world.
İzmir Katip Çelebi University Faculty of Pharmacy will host the DRD 2023 Symposium, which will be held in İzmir on May 4-6, 2023, with the contribution of almost forty pharmacy faculties. On behalf of ILARUD, I welcome all our stakeholders to DRD 2023, including scientists, young researchers, industrial delegates and colleagues from public institutions concerning medical and pharmaceutical areas. We fully anticipate that the Symposium's topics will genuinely reflect current trends, recent advances and new approaches to drug research and development and generate a fruitful discussion platform on this area.
We invite you to participate in the DRD 2023 held in İzmir, Türkiye, on May 4-6, 2023, and we believe that with your participation, DRD 2023 will turn into a memorable event.
With kind regards,
Prof. Gülberk UÇAR, Ph.D.
Co-Chair of DRD 2023
