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
<https://www.bps.ac.uk/>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)
