Missions

Our mission is to connect anyone who is interested in the advancement of pharmaceutical science, so they can learn from scientists who are willing to share operational, scientific and educational expertise.

We carry out our mission by holding regular seminars, workshops and dinner events which feature expert speakers presenting cutting edge research in drug discovery and development along with networking opportunities.  

Membership

Membership is free and participation in the BADG seminars and discussions are open to all who are interested.  We encourage BADG members to join our national organization: AAPS.
