The Western Canadian Medicinal Chemistry Workshop was developed with two major goals:

(1) To provide a forum for western Canadian researchers in the pharmaceutical sciences (medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics, pharmaceutics) chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology and physiology to meet and learn about common interests, with the goal of establishing cross-disciplinary collaborations within and between institutions.

(2) Provide training opportunities for postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate researchers with an interest in the pharmaceutical sciences.
