Mission

On March 20, 2019, the Kinki Branch of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan was renamed the Kansai Branch of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan.
The Kansai Branch (the former Kinki Branch) was established in 1941 as one of the six branches of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan, and has contributed to the development of pharmaceutical research and education in the Kansai region. With the aim of contributing to the advancement and dissemination of academic research in pharmaceutical sciences in Kansai, the branch will provide opportunities for Kansai Branch members and pharmaceutical researchers, working in Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara, and Wakayama prefectures, to present their research results and participate in seminars and training programs. Currently, the Kansai Branch has about 3,500 members.
