The New York Pharmacology Society (NYPS) Chapter of ASPET will hold its 6th Annual Scientific Meeting on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at the University at Buffalo Center for Arts in Buffalo, NY. The theme of the scientific meeting is Functional Selectivity: From Theory to Reality. 


2017 NYPS Speakers 

Plenary Symposium will include talks from Dr. Jonathan A. Javitch, Lieber Professor of Experimental Therapeutics, Columbia University Medical Center, Dr. Richard Mailman, Professor of Pharmacology, Penn State University and Dr. William P. Clarke, Maharaj Ticku Professor of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Sciences Center San Antonio.

Functional selectivity has introduced a new level of complexity which requires significantly greater understanding of receptor dynamics and the interaction with transduction mechanisms. Further, this has clear impact on modern drug discovery and development. This topic is timely and will be of great interest to the chapter and the greater scientific community.
