Moreover, DUPHAT helps pharmacists improve their performance through a scientific programme that features pharmacy workshops, presentations by outstanding speakers, and other activities during the conference and exhibition.

“We welcome the Dubai Biotechnology and Research Park as one of our sponsors for this scientific event. We believe the collaboration will significantly contribute to the success of the event. More importantly, it will act as the major B2B and B2C platform in the pharmaceuticals field.”
