APhA Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science


The APhA Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science (APhA-APRS) stimulates the discovery, dissemination and application of research to improve patient health and serves pharmacists and those members who are involved in the pharmaceutical sciences.

APhA-APRS Sections

Members of APhA may choose to belong to a primary section within APhA-Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science (APhA-APRS) based on their area of research. Members may belong to as many sections within APhA-APRS as they wish. APhA-APRS is governed by an Executive Council comprised of elected leaders from the three Sections of APhA-APRS: Basic Sciences, Clinical Sciences and Economic, Social and Administrative Sciences. Members receive access to continuing education, an online community for pharmacists, networking and leadership opportunities, premier research journals such as JAPhA and JPharmSci, cutting edge information on Medication Therapy Management, and regulatory issues facing the profession.

Pharmacy News

The National Governors Association recently released The Expanding Role of Pharmacists in a Transformed Health Care System.  This report highlights how states can better integrate pharmacists into the health care system and is one more confirmation of the profession’s role in addressing the health care needs of patients.

Scientists: Volunteer for your Academy

APhA-APRS seeks volunteers for its committees in the areas of Education, Awards, and Postgraduate activities. Committee service is a great way to get involved in the Association and network with colleagues. Academy volunteers provide input on APhA's products and programs, support the profession by addressing emerging issues, learn about new and innovative research and practice initiatives, and promote the role of the pharmacist and pharmaceutical scientist in enhancing patient care. Previous committee experience is not required.
