The Society's Themes
The Society is organised around six broad scientific Themes with a seventh, Education & Teaching Theme that spans all aspects of the scientific themes. Each theme has a Convenor, a main academic coordinator of the topic area who acts as the focal point for Members, helps to promote the Theme activities and encourages Members and non-members to participate in Society events.
The Themes encompass basic, applied and clinical (translational) aspects of research; they are very active groups which thrive on networking to discuss the latest findings and to forge new collaborations. Themed Meetings are organised by the Society and take place in April, September and December at locations across the UK. These lively and informative events feature research presentations within a theme topic area and are open to physiologists at any stage of their career, you do not need to be a Member to attend one of our meetings and we particularly encourage students and early career investigators to attend our meetings.
In addition to hosting meetings, Theme convenors and Members also actively input into Society policy, are active in public outreach activities that promote both the science of physiology and The Society in general.
The Theme convenors value comments or suggestions for Themed Meetings, symposia and plenary lectures. Please go to the relevant Theme pages for contact information.
