Public Engagement

The Physiological Society aims to bring physiologists and the public together through outreach and engagement activities which raise the awareness, understanding and appreciation of physiology.

We aim to develop a dialogue between The Society and public audiences, making physiology relevant by understanding the issues which are at the forefront of the public’s mind. Through this we can strengthen positive attitudes about science and perhaps inspire the next generation of physiologists. 

We are continually looking for ways to engage with new audiences through a range of Society and Member led activities, from schools outreach, public events, lectures and exhibitions, to Society presence at Science festivals around the country. We aslo offer support to both members and non-members wishing to engage with the public on physiology through our Outreach Grants (members only) and Public Engagement Grants Schemes (members and non-member applicants welcomed).
