Pharmacologists should take advantage of the efforts of the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (IUPHAR), a non-profit organization that provides resources to pharmacologists around the world. Two of the major online resources provided by IUPHAR are the career center and the Guide to Pharmacology, both of which can be accessed from the IUPHAR homepage. The career center allows users to search for jobs by keyword and country, while the Guide to Pharmacology is an excellent receptor database. Beyond those resources, visitors to the IUPHAR homepage can find information about upcoming meetings and conferences (both IUPHAR-sponsored events and various member-submitted meetings) relevant to specific subfields such as drug metabolism or immunopharmacology, as well as obtain information on how to become involved with the organization.
