About About the Pharmacology Education Project IUPHAR has invested in developing a database of receptors and ligands that aims to be the premier resource for pharmacological information for a range of key constituencies including those who develop drugs in industry, those who undertake preclinical and clinical research on drugs in an academic setting, and those who are learners striving for a better understanding of pharmacological mechanisms. A major challenge is to train individuals who work in these academic and industrial settings and are able to take advantage of that resource. This Pharmacology Education Project is intended to support those who are just starting to get to grips with the worlds of pharmacology and clinical pharmacology. The development of initiatives such as LIFETRAIN supported by the European Union indicates wider demands for education in pharmacology from academia and industry and similar demands have also come from academia in the less developed parts of the world. These requests come at a time when pharmacology as a discipline is becoming less well recognised in organisations progressively built around interdisciplinary structures. The IUPHAR Pharmacology Education Project is the logical international initiative that could seek to bridge this gap and make the pharmacological science underpinning its database accessible to a wider audience. There is much to be developed and we are looking forward to contributions from the international pharmacology community to expand the offerings. The IUPHAR Pharmacology Education Project has the potential to enhance significantly pharmacology knowledge across many disciplines worldwide. This will only come about, however, with your consistent use of the PEP site and sharing of relevant pharmacology content.
