Student Session

The student session is an oral presentation session aimed at promoting young researchers’ activities at the pharmacological society and supporting job hunting activities and career paths. This is a young-led presentation (English or Japanese) for undergraduate / graduate students. The Student Presentation Award will be selected from among the student sessions. After the student session, an exchange meeting (with snacks) will be held with young researchers, companies, hospitals and senior academia researchers.

  1. We invite applicants for “student session” from poster presenters who are undergraduate / graduate students when giving notice of adoption of general presentation. Please apply according to it.

If you wish to make a presentation only in a student session, please register a subject following the general subject registration method, and select “Student session (oral) only” in the presentation form.
