Pharmacology is the study of drugs. It involves examining the interactions of chemical substances with living systems, with a view to understanding the properties of drugs and their actions, including the interactions between drug molecules and receptors.
The Society was founded in 1931, in Oxford, by a group of around 20 pharmacologists. They were brought together on the initiative of J.A. Gunn, by a letter signed by JA Gunn, HH Dale , and WE Dixon, who proposed the formation of a pharmacological club.
The group met in Wadham College on the evening of Friday 3 July 1931, the day before the meeting of the Physiological Society. Professor Gunn presided over the meeting. It was agreed that a Society should be founded to meet at least once a year for the reading of papers on pharmacological subjects and the discussion of questions of teaching and publications and to promote friendly relations between pharmacologists!
