Photo contest winner

Winner of the photo contest at ECNP Congress 2017

The photo contest that took place in the 30th ECNP Congress 2017 in Paris was a huge hit among the participants.

EQIPD is supported through the Innovative Medicines Initiative partnership between the EU and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations. It is co-ordinated by Malcolm Macleod of the University of Edinburgh and the project leader is Thomas Steckler of Janssen Pharmaceutica NV.
