What’s in It for My Company?

AAPS offers timely scientific programs, ongoing education, information resources, opportunities for networking, and professional development. Although membership is on an individual basis, the knowledge your employees obtain through our educational and networking events can be easily transferrable to your company. With AAPS membership, your employees can:

  • participate in focus groups and sections, which bring professionals together to discuss current issues, research results, and exchange ideas;
  • learn from industry leaders by browsing informative articles in one of our three official AAPS journals;
  • interact with other pharmaceutical science professionals while attending the AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition, National Biotechnology Conference, or one of the numerous informative workshops; and
