Welcome Letter

Dear friends, dear colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our privilege and great pleasure to invite you to come to the 30th International Symposium on Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis (PBA 2019)

which will be held on September 15 – 18, 2019, in the Convention Centre of The David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel.

It follows a series of successful PBA symposia organized all over the world since 1987, when the first International Symposium on Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis (PBA) was launched in Barcelona. For the first time in its history, the Symposium arrives to the Middle East: the 30th PBA is going to take place in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The symposium will cover all aspects of pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis, including new analytical technologies and methodologies for (bio) pharmaceuticals, biomarkers, and “omics”. A special session will be focused on the emerging field of medical cannabis. It is in the spirit of this symposium series to attract researchers from all over the world, from a broad range of areas involved in drug analysis, related materials and endogenous compounds.

The aim of the 30th PBA is to bring together experts, decision makers and scientists in the field of modern analytical methods from Universities, Industry, Government Laboratories and Hospitals, in addition to designers and manufacturers of the most advanced, cutting-edge analytical equipment, to discuss the current status of analytical techniques and recent advances in theoretical developments and practical applications, as well as the present and future requirements and technological challenges.

Plenary and Keynote Lectures will be given by internationally recognized invited speakers. A number of materials will be presented as Oral Communications and Vendor Seminars. Preference will be given to Poster Presentations. Participation of young researchers, both from industry and academia, will be strongly supported by a dedicated young scientist session, best oral presentation and poster awards as well as a reduced registration fee and affordable lodging.

An attractive program of social events will also be arranged during the Symposium.

Israel as a country geographically bridging Europe, Asia and Africa and located on the crossroads of cultures and religions enjoys the established status of one of the most popular touristic destinations.

We look forward to seeing you in September 2019 and wish you a fruitful and enjoyable stay in Israel.

Vladimir Ioffe
PBA-2019 Chairman
