Where does AAPS programming come from? From YOU.

All programming at AAPS' Annual Meeting, National Biotechnology Conference, and all AAPS workshops comes from proposals received from members.

The programming committees assigned to each of the events review and choose the strongest, most innovative submissions for the event’s agenda.
