Welcome Message

Dear Honorable Delegates:

On behalf of the Pharmacological Society in Taiwan, I cordially welcome all of the participants to the 14th Asia Pacific Federation of Pharmacologists (APFP) held in Taipei.

After genome sequencing was applied in medical practice, therapeutic treatments entered an era of precision medicine which takes into account of individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. It predicts the treatment are effective in a group of patients more accurately. The main theme of APFP2020 is “Pharmacology for Precision Medicine”. As such, we organize symposia including pharmacogenomics, AI/Bioinformatics Pharmacology, Cell Therapy and new drug development presented by renowned experts from our neighboring national societies and worldwide. We are also privileged to have Professors Tasuku Honjo from Kyoto, Antonello Bonci from Baltimore, Guanhua Du from Beijing, Mien-Chie Hung from Taichung, Shimon Sakaguchi from Osaka and Chi-Huey Wong from Taipei as our plenary lectures. Certainly, your attendance will help enrich the discussion and exchanges of novel scientific findings.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Professor Wen-Chang Chang, Chairman of the local scientific program committee, for his tremendous contributions in organizing the scientific program. I would also thank to Professor Masayoshi Mishina, President of the APFP, for his enthusiastic support. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the financial supports of sponsors and exhibitors.

Wondrous and global Taipei is a cultural center, offering culinary delights, entertainment, touring and travel for everyone and a hub to the East. We sincerely look forward to seeing you at APFP2020 in Taipei.
