Conference Overview

After the success of the September 2005 First International Conference on Pharmaceutical Drugs, “Development, Production and Consumption: Interdisciplinary Perspectives for a Common Future,” we are proud to present the Second International Conference on the Parmaceutical Life Cycle, “Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Diversity and Complexity,” which takes place October 14 through 17, 2007, at the Mount Royal Centre in Montreal.

The event will bring together several hundred delegates—researchers, professionals and management from healthcare systems and research networks in many countries. The conference will also receive significant international exposure thanks to the participation of such prestigious institutions as the University of Oldenburg in Germany; the Universities of Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lyon, Paris, and Caen in France; the University of Geneva in Switzerland; Florida International University and New York University in the United States, as well as universities in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada.
