Young Physiologists' Symposium Edinburgh 2012

The 2012 Young Physiologists’ Symposium will take place in Edinburgh on 2 July 2012. The theme of the meeting is Integrative Physiology, and it offers all early-career researchers an opportunity to present their work and hear about the latest techniques being deployed across multiple levels of observation of physiological systems. Alongside presentations from PhD students and post-docs, there is an impressive line-up of invited speakers, concluding with the day’s plenary speaker, Professor Charles Ffrench-Constant – director of the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh.

YPS2012 logoYoung Physiologists’ Symposia are not organised by The Society, but by early-career researchers themselves and this one is no different. Organisers Steph Barnes, Peter Duncan, Amira Mahmoud and Andrew Morton are all PhD students at the Centre for Integrative Physiology, University of Edinburgh. Andrew told us the committee are 'looking forward to welcoming all young physiologists with a curiosity for the latest developments in diverse areas of physiology'.

Registration for the symposium will open on 1 March and all delegates are encouraged to submit an abstract for either a poster or talk. All abstracts submitted for the YPS can also be submitted for the Physiology 2012 meeting.
