BADG Bay Area Discussion Group is the local chapter of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS).

Our goal is to connect scientists throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding areas of Northern California.


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.
