Networking and Engaging with the Pharmacology Community
ASPET provides unparalleled opportunities to engage with others in the pharmacology community.
Evening Poster Receptions
Enjoy a drink and snacks while exploring the latest science or presenting it yourself! (Abstracts Abstract submission deadline is December 8).
Poster presentations are held every evening. Posters are grouped by divisional topic area and every night includes student and postdoc finalists competing for poster awards. Hear their presentations and discuss the latest research advances.
Opening Event at the Aquarium
ASPET will be making a splash on Thursday night in St. Louis! The Aquariumwill be shut down for our exclusive use.
Connect with old friends, meet new ones, and journey into the deep.
The program is designed to allow plenty of opportunity to share a meal with other scientists focused on pharmacology and experimental therapeutics. We encourage you to sit with someone different at every meal.
Generous Breaks Between Sessions
We’ve built 30-minute breaks between sessions into the schedule. You don’t have to rush to find the next session room. Take the time to linger to meet the speakers or chat with other
attendees in the session or compare notes with a colleague who attended a different session.
Since our opening session on Thursday, May 18th doesn’t start until 2:00 pm, it gives you
the morning to join in a smaller ASPET group for site-seeing tours or a community service project. More info coming soon.
Give a Day of Service to St. Louis
Thursday, May 18, 7:00 am – 1:00 pm
Since 2009 ASPET members attending the annual meeting have given a day of volunteer service in the local communities. Volunteer activities have ranged from home construction, to painting, cleaning, stocking shelves, building maintenance, food preparation and service. ASPET’s Division for Behavioral Pharmacology will again sponsor a volunteer opportunity at ASPET 2023 in St. Louis.
We will spend the day at the Saint Louis Dream Center helping them serve the citizens of St. Louis. If you want to volunteer, please sign-up when you register for the meeting. Space is limited and further details will be provided to those who volunteer.
