The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is a professional, scientific organization of approximately 10,000 members employed in academia, industry, government, and other research institutes worldwide. Founded in 1986, AAPS advances the capacity of pharmaceutical scientists to develop products and therapies that improve global health.
The UNMC-AAPS Student Chapter in the department of Pharmaceutical Sciences aims to foster an inter-professional relationship among students as well as health professionals in the field. This organization offers a platform to connect with people and explore opportunities that enable a strong foundation for a student’s future career goals and helps them navigate through graduate school. Events planned under this proposal shall increase the chances of funding for the UNMC AAPS chapter aiding in organizing events in campus wide basis.
