NC-IUPHAR Section Update from Dr. Steven Alexander

There have been several publications from NC-IUPHAR in the British Journal of Pharmacology in 2022, some of which were initiated from the twice-yearly meetings of the Nomenclature and Standards Committee (see below). These twice-yearly meetings (in spring and fall) continue to take place as virtual meetings, although it is anticipated that the spring 2023 meeting will allow attendees from within Europe to gather in Paris for discussions. As always, a central focus of these meetings is the database at and the provision of evidence-based content. Beyond these meetings, a current focus of NC-IUPHAR is a systematic analysis of the Family A orphan GPCR, with a view to identifying provisional putative endogenous ligands and reviewing evidence for deorphanizations.
