The major challenges to human health, environment, cultural heritage, economic development and scientific progress have always been in the focus of this series of Symposia from the very outset in 1983. The fifteenth edition of this event is no exception. Pharmaceuticals permeate
our daily life in many ways and allow us to attain a standard of wellness not thought of even only a few decades ago. On the other hand, the misuse or abuse of medicinal products can be a source of serious health problems thus eventually spoiling the countless benefits they can provide us with. These two conflicting aspects form the backbone of the XV IHSS and are thoroughly debated from many a viewpoint along with the role that the most innovative analytical techniques play in investigating the various facets of this dilemma.
