The Mission of the Hungarian Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology (HUPHAR)


The HUPHAR is a public benefit organisation founded in 1962. The Society’s mission is to advance pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, pharmaceutical research and innovation, including the pre-clinical and clinical development and clinical testing of medical equipment and their medicine combinations, as well as to promote the graduate and postgraduate training of professionals in all branches of pharmacology, to support the cultivation of all branches of pharmacology, and to establish national and international professional forums for discussing and publishing their results. The HUPHAR is an umbrella organisation for the various branches of pharmacology, focusing on professional cooperation in all areas of experimental and clinical pharmacology (which are no longer separable), and pharmaceutical development, given that in the 21st century, pharmaceutical research and development is founded on multidisciplinary translational research, development and innovation. The HUPHAR thus acts as a representative of various international pharmacological organisations such as the IUPHAR, the EPHAR, the EACPT and the IFAPP in Hungary.
