The American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology (ASCP) is excited to announce the name change for the annual meeting.  What has been known as NCDEU for the past 60 years will now be the Annual Meeting for the American Society of Clinical Pharmacology.   The 2014 ASCP Annual Meeting is co-sponsored by the WPA.

The meeting brings together over 1200 academic and industry investigators, research pharmacists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and other clinicians, including competitively selected New Investigator awardees.
