Society membership

We are a global community at the heart of pharmacology. Founded in 1931 – with just 38 members – we now represent around 4,000 members from over 60 countries.

As a vibrant science that studies drug action, pharmacology lies at the heart of biomedical science, linking together chemistry, physiology and pathology. Pharmacologists work closely with a wide variety of other disciplines that make up modern biomedical science, including but not limited to biochemistry, neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, genetics, immunology and cancer biology.
