Young Physiologists' Symposium (YPS)

The theme for YPS2012 is integrative physiology, and will place an emphasis on the latest techniques being deployed across multiple levels of observation of physiological systems.

There will be sessions spanning physiology at the most reductionist level up to the level of in vivo and systems physiology.

We hope the meeting will appeal to PhD students and postdocs working on diverse aspects of physiology.

YPS2012 is free to attend for Affiliate Members of The Physiological Society with research interests covered by any of The Society's Themes.

So, if you're planning on attending the main Physiology 2012 meeting, why not come along and enjoy a day discussing science with your peers in an informal environment?

A brief programme can be seen below, for more information visit the dedicated website.
