The biannual meeting of the ESDPPP (European Society of Developmental Perinatal and Pediatric Pharmacology) was held in Belgrade, Serbia from June 23rd-26th 2015. This event provided a perfect platform to share data and results of the ongoing research of our consortium with experts on pediatric pharmacology from all over the world. Presentations (n=11) covered both oral (o) as well as poster (p) presentations. The list is hereunder provided chronologically.
