Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am happy to welcome you to the 55th Brazilian Congress of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, to be held at the Rafain Palace Hotel & Convention Center in Foz do Iguaçu (Paraná, Brazil), from the 25th to 28th of September 2023. This event is significant as we celebrate 55 years of annual meetings set in motion by SBFTE, the 10 years of the SBFTE Youth, and the 25th José Ribeiro do Valle Award edition. Other highlights of the 55th Brazilian Congress of Pharmacology I would like to emphasize are the presentations of the winners of the 1st edition of the Women in Pharmacology in Brazil Award and the 4th edition of the Senior Pharmacologist Award. Moreover, this Congress will be the first held in person since the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, lots of celebrations and an excellent opportunity to catch up with friends and share our most recent scientific achievements face-to-face once again. The theme Exploring New Technologies in Pharmacology and Therapeutics will cover a substantial part of the program. The congress will assemble national and international leaders at the frontier of pharmacological knowledge, addressing the most recent advances in basic science and translational and clinical development. The program, carefully prepared by the Congress’ scientific committee, will bring together researchers, entrepreneurs, and decision-makers across the fields of pharmacology and biomedical sciences. It will include conferences, symposiums, courses, and poster discussion sessions addressing the latest discoveries and stimulating the maximum formal and informal interaction possible amongst all participants. I look forward to welcoming you for an exciting and fruitful experience in Foz do Iguaçu later this year.
