Dear respected members of the Korean Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technology (KSPST),
I wish you a brilliant 2024 filled with joy and blessings.
I express deep gratitude to all members of KSPST for the unwavering support and dedication.
Since its establishment in 1971, KSPST has been at the forefront of advancing pharmaceutical sciences. KSPST has dedicated itself to facilitating the prompt dissemination of academic research outcomes and the industrial application of innovative science, through organizing the regular scientific events such as the Science Month Symposium, Pharmaceutical Technology Workshop, and International Conference of KSPST. In addition, Journal of Pharmaceutical Investigation (JPI), an official journal of KSPST, ranked in the top-tier international journals in 2023, achieving a remarkable growth and development. It is a testament to the commitment of KSPST to scholarly excellence and its contribution to the global discourse in pharmaceutical sciences.
Reflecting on the accomplishments detailed in the ‘50 Years of KSPST’ (published in 2021), KSPST becomes an esteemed society with a rich history, thanks to the unwavering efforts and dedication of all members over the past half-century. Now, KSPST stands at a crucial juncture marking another leap for the next 50-year chapter. In 2024, the emphasis is on laying the groundwork for this new leap. The focus is on strengthening and diversifying international collaborations to elevate the academic influence and recognition of KSPST in the global society. Another emphasis is on implementing various programs for pioneering future pharmaceutical technologies and fostering the next generation of global leaders.
In 2024, the executive committee of KSPST is fully committed to giving our utmost effort for the continuous growth and development of KSPST. The year 2024 holds the promise of being a significant period for the advancement of KSPST.
