The Pharmacologist

The Pharmacologist, ASPET’s quarterly news magazine, features updates on Society affairs, articles of importance to ASPET members, and announcements of upcoming events. Each issue provides our members with:

  • updates from each of our departments, providing our members with news and information they need to know about our Journals, Science Policy, Education, Annual Meeting, and beyond
  • a feature story about some element or history of pharmacology that interests even a non-pharmacologist
  • in-depth interviews and short articles in our “Members in the News” section
  • updates from our scientific divisions and regional chapters

The Pharmacologist is an online news magazine but print subscriptions may be purchased. The magazine's production team includes Suzie Thompson, Rich Dodenhoff, Catherine Fry, and Judy Siuciak. Issues of the magazine prior to 2014 are available on the archive page.
