IUPHAR (International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology
<http://www.guidetopharmacology.org/>) has developed and is developing a
series of web-based services for the Pharmacological Sciences, for
education, and for drug discovery. These services enable the simplification
and dissemination of highly complex datasets, via expert committees linked
to ontologically-correct databases (e.g., the drug and receptor sites
expressed by the human genome). This has also allowed IUPHAR—in connection
with the main national pharmacological societies, particularly the British
Pharmacological Society <https://www.bps.ac.uk/>—to raise funds for
curators and meetings. This simple model is open-ended and is being
expanded to, for example, immunological targets and experimental protocols,
and to educational projects.

This Webinar will consist of six talks under the following titles:
1. IUPHAR: Overview and strategy (Michael Spedding)
2. NC-IUPHAR, the Guide to PHARMACOLOGY database (GtoPdb) and Concise Guide
(Adam Pawson, Steve Alexander)
3. Database developmental aspects (Joanna Sharman)
4. The new Guide to IMMUNOPHARMACOLOGY database (GtoImmuPdb) initiative
(Simon Harding, Jamie Davies)
5. The Pharmacology Education Project (PEP) (John Szarek)
6. Main IUPHAR website (Lynn LeCount)
