The goal of the NVKFB is to stimulate education, research and working in clinical pharmacology and bio-pharmacy according to scientific and ethical standards and to promote cooperation within the professional field. Clinical pharmacologists are in the broadest sense engaged in research and the therapeutic use of medicines in the treatment of patients. In addition, clinical pharmacologists are involved in drug research in healthy volunteers, especially in the field of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
The members of the NVKFB consist of specialists in internal medicine, hospital pharmacists and other professionals with a (bio) medical scientific education. They also offer a special student membership. As a student member you can participate in the various activities of the NVKFB. The biggest activity is the Spring Meeting that takes place annually, as the name implies, in the spring. The NVKFB also maintains a database with theses, http://nvkfb.science.uu.nl/proefschrift.
The NVKFB also represents Dutch clinical pharmacologists at the European Association for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (EACPT), which organizes an annual European congress.
