Dear members of the KSPST,

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the members for their dedication and generous support for the KSPST, and I hope you will always be healthy and full of peace and happiness at home at a time when we are carefully exiting the long tunnel of the COVID-19 pandemic. The former president Prof. Oh Yu-Kyung took over as the Minister of the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety and I, the senior vice president, took over as president, so I am greeting you like this.

Thanks to the sacrificing efforts of the members of KSPST, which has a long history of 51 years, our official journal JPI (Journal of Pharmaceutical investigation) has achieved the feat of being recognized as a world-class SCIE journal. In addition, our society has been officially registered as the Korea LC (Local Chapter) of the International Controlled Release Society (CRS) and is playing important roles on the international stage. This will serve as a stepping stone for young and competent members of the KSPST to work and discuss together with many world-class scientists abroad, and further help develop domestic pharmaceutical, bio-health and related industries.

I think the Korean proverb, "구슬이 서말이라도 꿰어야 보배" or the American proverb, "Nothing is complete unless you put it in final shape," is perhaps the best expression of the essence of our society. KSPST will always do its best to make the precious "beads" of various domestic and foreign researchers well "crush" and become a valuable "treasure."

We will do our best to become a competent KSPST that develops further in 2022 with the deep interest and participation of all the members.

Thank you very much.

May 27th, 2022 Kim, Jin-Seok
President of the Korean Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technology
