"NC-IUPHAR" is the Nomenclature and Standards Committee of the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology. The mission for NC-IUPHAR was initiated in 1987 at the Xth International Congress of Pharmacology. In 1989, the Executive Committee of IUPHAR named Paul Vanhoutte (Hong Kong) as chairman of a revised and enlarged committee. This committee energetically expanded its activities and the number of subcommittees (to 33), eventually producing the first official compendium on the occasion of the XIIIth International Congress of Pharmacology at Munich in 1998. Robert Ruffolo (USA) was Chairman of NC-IUPHAR from 1998-2002. Michael Spedding (France) became Chairman in 2002 and was elected again in 2006 and 2010. This role was taken over in 2015 by Steve Alexander (England) as Michael Spedding moved to hold the post of Secretary-General of IUPHAR.
