In 2022, we will deliver the following activities, mapped to our new strategic objectives:

Goal 1: Advance the discipline of pharmacology,  communicating its beneficial impact on animal and human health.

  • Bringing the pharmacological community together through  an innovative programme of  commissioned and member-led  content, online and in-person.

  • Curating, and where necessary expanding, content into thematic  priorities, which are joined-up across policy, publishing, education, training, and meetings.

  • Leveraging our strengths in the production and delivery of quality content to disseminate cutting edge science to a global audience.

Goal 2: Foster and celebrate a diverse pharmacological community, flexing our provision to meet the changing needs of our community.

  • Focusing on removing barriers to inclusion, building equity and  accessibility into every entry,  progression, and decision point within the Society.

  • Harmonising our education, training and engagement projects in  collaboration with our community, by aligning them to our thematic priorities and taking account of the  needs of those within industry, academia and clinical settings.

  • Embracing digital opportunities so that we can extend our reach, grow membership, and expand our communities of engagement.

  • Sharing stories that articulate the breadth and depth of pharmacology, to represent and inspire the next generation of pharmacologists.

Goal 3: Secure our future so that we can support the next generation of pharmacologists and continue to champion the importance of the discipline for the benefit of human and animal 

  • Developing and adapting our publishing portfolio, taking into  account the research environment and community requirements, ensuring we provide a place to publish for all pharmacology researchers.
