Warm Greetings to all my Colleagues and Fellow Members of MSPP

       It is my greatest pride and honor to assume the Chair of the MSPP conference for 2023. On behalf of the organizing committee of MSPP 2023 with the theme “Pharmacological & Physiology in Post-Millennial Era: Challenges and opportunities” welcomes you to join us on 7 & 8th August 2023 for our annual MSPP conference. This year definitely marks a new beginning for post pandemic of Covid-19 and a new beginning for MSPP conference that will be held with physical attendance with the presence of distinguished speakers from distinct regions from worldwide. As we transit from “new norm” of post pandemic, this will be the first year MSPP conference will be conducted with physically with the professional community. Thus, it will be great opportunity to share ground breaking ideas for new research and innovations to create even greater value to all corners of the globe to chart our journey forward to reach new heights in research. 

     Despite all the barriers and challenges meet during the pandemic, we still have witnessed new translational research for the betterment of humankind survival. Yet, most of the research and innovations are still remains unrecognized. Therefore, the new era of MSPP will allow all faculties and delegates to reflect upon and celebrate past accomplishments, renew friendships and extend networks among renowned professionals, and jointly explore current and future research directions. It promotes top level research and to globalize the quality research in general, thus making discussions, presentations more internationally competitive and focusing attention on the recent outstanding achievements in the field of physiology and pharmacology. We hope that you will have a productive and fun‐filled time at this very special conference. We’re looking forward to an excellent meeting with great scientists from different countries around the world and sharing new and exciting research in challenges they faced and the available opportunities in the field of physiology and pharmacology in the post millennial era. 

     As so, let’s join hands for the future of this world in which our collaborative efforts have the power to change the destiny and give a new insight into ground breaking research ideas for the betterment of Next-gen of mankind. Let us keep it that way!
