Advancing the science and practice of clinical pharmacology and translational medicine for the therapeutic benefit of patients and society.
The American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (ASCPT) was founded in 1900, and consists of over 2,300 professionals whose primary interest is to advance the science and practice of clinical pharmacology and translational medicine for the therapeutic benefit of patients and society. ASCPT is the largest scientific and professional organization serving the disciplines of clinical pharmacology and translational medicine.
ASCPT focuses on improving the understanding and use of existing drug therapies and developing safer and more effective treatments for the future. Our memberships' unique combination of scientific and clinical expertise makes them especially qualified to understand the impact of disease on patients, the compelling need for effective drug therapy, and the efforts necessary to meet those needs. Such efforts include research, exchange of scientific information, and awareness of legislative requirements that affect drug development and regulation.
ASCPT's influence and leadership make it the authority on the science and practice of translational medicine, building on a foundation of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics.
The Society's strategic plan for 2015 through 2020 focuses on five goals of scientific expertise, catalyst for innovation, influence and impact, education and communication, and organizational effectiveness in Transforming Translation
- Clinical pharmacology and translational medicine drive the development and use of therapeutics to enhance patient care.
- The continuum of clinical pharmacology and translational medicine strengthens the discovery, development, regulation, as well as safe and effective utilization of medicines.
- The unique strength of ASCPT lies in its multi-disciplinary nature and its ability to be a catalyst for emerging science.
- ASCPT demonstrates the highest standards of ethics and integrity and fosters these values with a commitment to diversity.
