PMI Science Poster Discussion Symposium

PMIScience are organizing a Scientific Poster Discussion Symposium on the 24th June 2015 at the International Convention Centre, Jeju, South Korea and we would like to you to take part in this exciting event!

This symposium is an opportunity for us to share our latest science in the field of Tobacco Harm Reduction and have an open and fruitful discussion with you on our scientific approach. Our Symposium will include all of the posters we are presenting at the 2015 AsiaTox meeting, and will give us the opportunity to have an in-depth discussion and hear your views on the science presented. At the symposium we will also discuss how the science presented fits into our overall approach for developing and assessing reduced risk tobacco products. 

You can find the agenda for the meeting below, which details all of the posters that we will be presenting. 

The format of the meeting allows for a free-poster session at the beginning of the symposium, followed by a key-note presentation by Dr Manuel Peitsch. This will be followed by a 10-minute presentation and discussion of each poster.

You can receive your complimentary invitation to this symposium by filling in the registration form before the 17th June 2015.

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to the PMI Science Poster Discussion Symposium.
