Honorary membership

The Physiological Society awards Honorary Membership to individuals who are ‘persons of distinction in science who have contributed to the advancement of physiology or to the work of The Society’.

An Honorary Membership may be awarded to any individual and the privilege is not just limited to current Members of The Society.

Honorary Members have the same rights and benefits as Ordinary Members of The Society, but are not called upon to pay annual subscriptions. In addition, Honorary Members are also eligible to receive a print subscription to The Journal of Physiology free of charge as well as free attendance at Society meetings.

Proposals are sought, for assessment, by the Nominations Committee who will advise Council on formal nomination. The new Honorary Members are announced at the Annual General Meeting.
