Indian Medical Pharmacologists Association


Indian Medical Pharmacologists Association (IMPA) is an association for medical pharmacologists to interact and disseminate the knowledge of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics.IMPA is the first association exclusively for MD/DM/DNB Pharmacologists/Clinical Pharmacologists in India. This is formed by a team of young and dynamic MD pharmacologists with the guidance from the senior pharmacologists. IMPA registered under the Tamilnadu Societies Registration Act: Regn.no #173/2014.

The idea to form IMPA struck in my mind when I attended the World Congress of Clinical and Basic Pharmacology (WCP) 2014, Capetown, for which I was given registration and travel bursaries by IUPHAR, to present my research papers on Type 2 diabetes.

The need for IMPA:

Pharmacology is a rapidly evolving field. In India, it all started when the Association of Physiologists and Pharmacologists (APPI) was formed and the budding field of pharmacology had its first association for itself in independent India. In due course pharmacologists felt the need for a separate space for themselves and so the Indian Pharmacological Society (IPS) was formed. It included pharmacologists from all the field of research including medicine, dentistry, Veterinary, AYUSH, basic sciences etc.
