The European Association for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (EACPT) was founded 22 years ago and now includes as members all national organisations for clinical pharmacology in Europe, as well as organisations from further afield internationally. 

The EACPT aims to provide educational and scientific support for the more than 4000 individual professionals interested in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics throughout the European region, with its congresses attended by a global audience. The EACPT also advises policy makers on how the specialty can contribute to human health and wealth.

The 12th biennial Congress of the EACPT is being held in Madrid from 27th to 30th June 2015.
