The three goals and contributions of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan established by the first president Nagayoshi Nagai in establishing the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan in 1880 are as follows.

  1. We will change chemicals as easily as possible to be absorbed by the human body as soon as possible
  2. We will clarify the active ingredients of crude drugs
  3. We will use chemical synthesis technology to create chemicals

To have the Japanese medicine industry stormy in the world with the above.
This is the goal of the Headquarters Association to be handed over to the future.
The mission of the Headquarters Association is to actively support people gathering pharmacology towards realizing that goal.
