About The Conference

The University of Pisa, the Department of Pharmacy and PhD students of "Science of Drug and Bioactive Substances" invite all interested participants to attend the 1st International Conference on "Innovative Research in Pharmaceutical and Environmental Sciences".

This conference offers a well organised scientific program to the audience and includes a wide range of keynote presentations, plenary lectures, symposia, and poster presentations.

The Pharmaceutical Sciences combine a broad range of scientific disciplines with a crucial role in drug discovery and drug development, which include Drug Discovery, Drug Design, Drug Action, Clinical Research, Pharmacoeconomics, Drug Delivery, Drug Analysis and Regulatory Affairs. The Environmental Sciences integrate different research fields to study the environment and different solutions to environmental problems, with particular interest towards Green Chemistry.

The Conference is organised by PhD students of Department of Pharmacy of the University of Pisa and it is financed by the same Department and University. They devised the Conference as a unique occasion to broadly disseminate recent advances in the field of pharmaceutical and environmental science research, giving the opportunity to young researchers to increase their knowledge and to establish collaborations and job networks.


The official language of the IRPES2019 conference is English.

The final program is now available.

Pisa is regularly served by trains, flights and coaches to/from other main Italian cities.

Getting there by Train

Pisa Centrale is the main railway station of Pisa. Trains from Rome, Genoa, Milan, Naples stop at Pisa Centrale; usually there are many trains every hour to/from Florence, Lucca, Livorno, Siena, and many others.

Getting there By Flight

Pisa Galileo Galilei airport is the main airport in Tuscany and is served by several airlines that operate hundreds of weekly flights to national and international destinations. Many companies offer low-cost flights to and from a number of European and non-European destinations. The flight to Pisa is really cheap and easy: the most important low-cost airlines serve Pisa. The airport is close to the city center and it takes only a few minutes to reach the center by bus, train or taxi. The airport is a short walk from the center, about 20 minutes. The Pisa Airport is about 1 km from Pisa Centrale railway station, from which you can reach any Italian railway network destination. At 40 metres from the Passenger Terminal at the Pisa Airport, you can find the new, high-speed, fully automatic People Mover service for direct connections between the Pisa Centrale railway station and the airport. The service is available every day from 4:30 AM to 1:30 AM at 5/8 minute intervals.

At the airport, bus tickets may be purchased at the Information Desk (Arrivals Area). The Bus Area (P6) is located just outside the Passenger Terminal Arrivals Area. The bus terminal is right in front of the airport, on the right hand side as it exits the terminal. Once you are in the city, its main monuments are easy to spot and are all within walking distance.

If you prefer a more convenient travel method, a taxi to the city center costs about € 6-8. Otherwise, you can alternatively book an airport transfer in advance. This service is particularly useful for large groups.

Getting there By Car

A network of motorways connects Pisa to the rest of the Italian peninsula. Coming from the A11, take the exit either at "Pisa Nord" or "Pisa Aeroporto". The highway known as FI-PI-LI (Florence - Pisa - Livorno) conveniently connects Pisa to the cities of Florence and Livorno.
