The Rudolf Buchheim 200 Conference


We are very pleased to invite you to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Rudolf Buchheim, and participate in the conference “Rudolf Buchheim 200: New Essays on the Doctrine of Drugs” to be held on September 9-11, 2021 in Tartu, the birthplace and cradle of pharmacology (


The Rudolf Buchheim 200 Conference will bring together pharmacists, and researchers and medical doctors with deeper interest in pharmacology and its developments in contemporary medicine and health care. The conference will look back at the history of pharmacology and review the state of the art of clinical practice and modern technologies in developing better medicines. The conference venue is the historic main building of the University of Tartu. Other historical premises, including the building where Buchheim worked and lectured, will provide a suitable backdrop for networking with colleagues during social events.


Given the epidemiological circumstances we have maintained the planning of the event as flexible as possible. At present we are positive about conducting the conference, taking all necessary measures at the conference location. Registration will remain open until the beginning, and abstract submission will be open until two days before the event. Make use of the opportunity to come together, again, where modern pharmacology started!

On behalf of the organising committee,

Yours sincerely,


Jaanus Harro, MD, PhD

Chairman, Estonian Society of Pharmacology
