Many very important new medicinal drugs have been constructed and taken to marketplace within the Fifties and Sixties making sure the necessity for extra systematic wisdom of drug results in people and in addition offering new occupation possibilities in educating, study and perform. The thirtieth anniversary of the British magazine of medical Pharmacology in 2004 and the seventy fifth anniversary of the British Pharmacological Society in 2006 had brought on reflections from working towards scientific pharmacologists. It was once well timed, consequently, to compile scientific pharmacologists and others who've formed the self-discipline, to advertise ancient research and debate. Chaired through Professor Rod Flower, the assembly thought of such questions as: What was/is medical pharmacology? that have been the most centres of impression? Who and what have been the most drivers? Who turned medical pharmacologists and why? What used to be the importance of specialised societies, conferences and journals? members: Dr Stuart Anderson, Dr Jeffrey Aronson, Professor David Barnett, Dr Linda Beeley, Professor Sir James Black, Professor Morris Brown, Professor Mark Caulfield, Sir Iain Chalmers, Professor Donald Davies, Professor Robin Ferner, Dr Arthur Fowle, Professor Sir Charles George, Professor David Gordon, Professor David Grahame-Smith, Dr Andrew Herxheimer, Dr Kenneth Hunter, Professor Trevor Jones, Professor Desmond Laurence, Professor Denis McDevitt, Professor Walter Nimmo, Professor Michael Orme, Dr Anthony Peck, Professor Laurie Prescott, Professor Brian Prichard, Professor John Reid, Professor James Ritter, Professor Philip Routledge, Professor Tilli Tansey, Professor Geoffrey Tucker, Professor Patrick Vallance, Professor Duncan Vere, Professor Owen Wade, Professor David Webb and Professor Frank Woods.

Clinical Pharmacology in the UK, c. 57 We saw physiological parameters changing, and I think that was incredibly important for a large number of students.

So, I encourage you to annotate this sheet of paper with any additional information you think might be valuable – publications I don’t know about, events I have forgotten – and at some time in the future let us have it back, so that we can increase the amount of information in this chronology. On the other side of the paper you will find something I have called ‘Towards a map of the history of academic departments’. If at some time – perhaps today, but it doesn’t have to be – you could try, particularly those of you who were professors of clinical pharmacology or lecturers or whatever, in different institutions, to answer those questions, it would be very helpful in building up a map of the history of the subject, to see where people came from, where they were at particular times, and so on.
