Affinity groups

The 2013 membership survey highlighted that one of the main reasons members joined the Society was to keep up-to-date with developments in their field. To help support and facilitate this the Meetings Committee launched the following seven Affinity Groups.

These groups will play a central role in encouraging networking and discussion between members, and encompass the areas previously defined by the Society’s Special Interest Groups.
  • Ensure all areas of pharmacology are well represented in Society activities
  • Uphold the scientific quality of any BPS events relating to the Affinity Groups’ activities
  • Facilitate networking and discussion amongst researchers within the area
  • Recruit and review symposia proposals for, and assist in programme development of, the Society’s meetings' calendar
  • Provide support for the abstract review process for the Society’s annual meeting
  • Link with our journals with a view to providing content for themed issues and reviews
  • Interact with other Learned Societies and funding bodies in the UK and overseas
  • Deal with media enquiries and consultations
