About Us:

Pharmaceutical & BioScience Society (PBSS) is a non-profit professional organization of scientists and other professionals in various pharmaceutical and life science fields, working in diverse organizations such as the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, instrumentation and analytical product suppliers, universities, government laboratories and contract research organizations. Our root in analytical chemistry, mass spectrometry, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics is still reflected in some of the programs we organize. While our 3000+ members are largely concentrated in the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Diego Area, we also have members residing in other biotech / pharmaceutical clusters in North America.

Mission Statement:

The mission of PBSS is to promote the exchange of scientific and technical ideas and to provide educational and growth opportunities in the fields of pharmaceutical / life science and related disciplines. We foster interactions and disseminate information through seminar luncheons, targeted workshops (short courses), expert forums, vendor shows, and job opening announcements.

Event Calendar:

All of our scheduled events are listed below.
