The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is a globally recognized professional scientific organization founded in 1986, comprised of over 10,000 members in academia, industry and government. AAPS encompasses a variety of scientific fields such as: pharmaceutics, biopharmaceutics, chemistry, biology, engineering, medicine, and other pharmacy fields of study.
The Auburn University chapter of AAPS (AU-AAPS) was founded in the Fall of 2016 by five graduate students with the desire to establish a club for students researching within the areas of pharmaceuticals and the surrounding fields. Not only was this the first graduate student club in the Harrison School of Pharmacy, it was the first AAPS student chapter formed in the state of Alabama.
AAPS strives to advance all fields dedicated to drug discovery, development and manufacturing of new pharmaceutical products and therapies. The goal of AU-AAPS is to provide professional development, learning experiences and leadership opportunities to graduate students to prepare them for their careers following graduation.
