Current Members of Early Career Researchers Subcommittee
What We Do
Initially established in 2019 with 12 inaugural members, the Early Career Section now is made up of 23 early career researchers (ECRs) from 23 countries. Collectively our goals are to:
- Engage with IUPHAR and other pharmacological member societies
- Represent the general perspectives and interests of emerging researchers in pharmacology
- Enhance research collaborations among ECRs worldwide
- Create and promote career, educational, and networking opportunities for ECRs worldwide
