Welcome to the Molecular Pharmacology Division of ASPET. The division
is actively involved in developing programming and sponsoring symposia
and colloquia at the Annual meetings of ASPET at Experimental Biology.
We also sponsor other meetings of interest to Molecular Pharmacology
Division members. On this website you will find information on
activities, Student and Postdoctoral awards, and the people involved in
governing the division and more.
ASPET recognizes members who been recognized by the scientific community for the major contributions they have made to the discipline. Click on the above link for a feature on William A. Catterall (University of Washington) of the Division for Molecular Pharmacology.

The 2012 Great Lakes GPCR Retreat will be held October 17-19. Registration information can be found here: http://www.gpcr-retreat.com/.
The Molecular Pharmacology of GPCRs 2012 meeting will be held
December 6-8 in Melbourne, Australia. Further information on the meeting
and registration can be found at: www.gpcrmeeting.com.
The ASPET Division for Molecular Pharmacology serves members
applying approaches of biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, and
molecular biology to study molecular mechanisms of drug action,
regardless of the class of drug. Areas of interest include (but are not
limited to): drug receptor-effector coupling and its regulation (e.g.
receptor- structure and function, G proteins, kinases, phosphatases,
and second messenger synthesis and degradation), voltage- and
ligand-gated ion channels, antimicrobial and antineoplastic drug
action, steroid and growth factor receptors, gene regulation, and
identification of molecular targets for drugs.
