UPHAR views meetings, conferences, workshops and congresses as opportunities for sharing information and identifying collaboration opportunities to advance the discipline of pharmacology. Therefore, IUPHAR presents information here about meetings that range in scope from local to regional to international.
IUPHAR member societies are encouraged to list their meetings, conferences, workshops, congresses or any other event that may be of interest to pharmacologists by emailing the title, date(s), city, country and event website to the IUPHAR Administrative Office. Events organized by the IUPHAR Division, Sections and Subcommittees are also listed on the IUPHAR Member Society Conferences webpage.
To view the conferences, workshops and events specifically organized by the various IUPHAR Sections and Subcommittees, please visit the “Meetings & Events” webpages of the Section or Subcommittee of interest to you.
IUPHAR will consider sponsoring a series of Regional Focused Conferences to be held in the years between the IUPHAR World Congresses. Generally, these conferences will have:
- a regional focus involving national pharmacology societies from three or more countries in the region or two national societies and an IUPHAR Section and
- a theme or focus on a basic or clinical pharmacology or therapeutic area of particular interest or importance to the region.
IUPHAR provides a loan of up to US$10,000 for approved conferences. Member societies of IUPHAR interested in organizing a Regional Focused Conference should contact the IUPHAR Administrative Office.
To respond to the increasingly important relationship between the pre-clinical and therapeutic axes of pharmacology, in July 2010 IUPHAR launched the first combined World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (WorldPharma2010) held in Copenhagen and expertly organized by the Danish Society of Pharmacology and Toxicology. The IUPHAR World Congresses of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology now represent the full spectrum of pharmacology research and education.
