Description: The Guide to PHARMACOLOGY is a joint initiative by the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (IUPHAR) Committee on Receptor Nomenclature and Drug Classification (NC-IUPHAR). The Guide to PHARMACOLOGY web portal provides summaries of the key properties of a wide range of biological targets, recommended background reading and information on recommended ligands for use in experiments. Data in the Guide to PHARMACOLOGY come from the BPS Guide to Receptors and Channels (GRAC), published as a supplement of the British Journal of Pharmacology, and the IUPHAR Database. An Educational Site is under development to provide basic and clinical scientists with guidelines and educational resources for pharmacology.
