Molecualr and Cellular Phramacology Group Mission Statement

The remit of the MCPG is is to provide coverage of topics in the area of molecular and cellular pharmacology for members of the Society. Our group is composed of Biochemists from both industry and academia, and we are particularly interested in serving the needs of members of the Society in industry. The expertise of our group spans immunopharmacology, signal transduction, drug metabolism and xenobiotics, neuropharmacology and molecular modelling. We organize meetings on diverse topics, some of direct relevance to the pharmaceutical industry, others in areas of basic research likely to be of relevance to drug development and therapeutic targeting.

The MCPG committee encourages members to suggest topics for future meetings, either as stand alone symposia or as colloquiua at main Biochemical Society meetings.
Any suggestions should be forwarded to committee members by e-mail.


Group Meetings

Meetings organized by the group during 2001, include:
2 Colloquia at the
Dublin meeting, July 11-13.
