The SSPT was founded in 1965 and is a scientific society. The purpose of the society is to promote and support all interests of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Switzerland (Bye-Laws).

The SSPT currently constitutes the umbrella organisation of the following four member societies:

  • Swiss Society of Experimental Pharmacology (SSEP),
  • Swiss Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (SSCPT),
  • Swiss Society of Toxicology (SST),
  • Swiss Society of Pharmaceutical Medicine (SGPM).

The SSPT organizes scientific meetings of general interest for all associated societies. The SSPT represents the field of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Switzerland within national societies and associations including Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2) and Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT).


The SSPT provides travel grants to post-graduates in Biomedical Sciences in training, supporting travel to international scientific conferences. The travel grants are awarded twice a year: May 15 and October 15. Applications are welcomed (whenever possible please send your application electronically):


Due to the current coronavirus outbreak this year's SSPT Spring Meeting had to be cancelled.

The next SSPT Spring Meeting with the topic "Gene and Cell Therapy" will take place on April 15, 2021 in Bern, Inselspital.
