Aberdeen: The Society and physiology

The long association of Aberdeen, and The Society, stretches from Regius Chair of Physiology, William ‘Billy’ Stirling, being one of the Society’s first members (1877), up to the current incumbent, Colin McCaig. 

Aberdeen is associated with five Nobel Prizes, including John Macleod’s for Medicine or Physiology for studying insulin. It has two Universities, the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University, and is Scotland's ‘Safest University City’. The University of Aberdeen (est. 1496) runs a very popular Physiology degree, annually awarding a Society-sponsored Physiology Prize.

About Aberdeen

As the ‘Oil Capital of Europe’, we have excellent transport links, including a well-served international airport, plus restaurants for every budget and taste.

The city and ‘shire offers stunning beaches and wildlife, including dolphin- and seal-watching from the city’s two rivers. 

For the more adventurous, there are Olympic standard indoor sport and aquatic facilities, the UK’s largest mountain range (Cairngorm National Park), and Royal Deeside, where the royal family spend the summer and attend local Highland Games. 

Completing the list are more than 300 castles and stately homes, including Balmoral and dramatic Dunnotar (setting for Mel Gibson’s Hamlet), numerous ‘recumbent’ stone circles, Neolithic hillforts, decorated Pictish standing stones and 20hr/day of natural light to fit it all in. There is something for everyone – including, of course, the unmissable ceilidh dance to burn off those calories from The Physiological Society dinner.
