Make plans to attend the 22nd Annual Symposium on Clinical & Pharmaceutical Solutions through Analysis (CPSA USA 2019). This unique event is highly interactive. The program features updated perspectives and experiences on clinical and pharmaceutical analysis. Imagination and stimulating discussion are central to each CPSA session and event.

CPSA Background and History

This annual meeting began in 1998 and was the first industry-led event to complement academic-based meetings and address the specific needs of industry researchers. The program highlights current industry trends and relevant topics. The broad-based support has allowed the meeting to evolve into a premier industry-led event that is dedicated to promoting awareness of issues and needs associated with research and development.

Over the past +20 years, the CPSA event has attracted sponsors, thought leaders, and participants who are dedicated to the spirit of cooperation to achieve common goals. The event is dedicated to promoting the analytical sciences in an interactive and educational environment.

Meeting Format

The meeting features a unique format to allow scientists to openly share their comprehensive perspectives on industry-related issues and needs. First-hand experiences with specific applications and technologies are openly discussed.

Imagine Summit

The Imagine Summit is a coming together of the vison and dreams of a unique group of researchers, clinicians, industry and collaborators collectively striving to make a difference. Based upon ongoing events through Merck, New Objective Town Halls, and CPSA Annual Meetings, the Imagine Summit poses the question to the Imagineer "What if you had no boundaries...?" Challenged to dream big, work together, and develop solutions, this forum provides a special evening of possibilities to develop solutions and change the world.
