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 and deputy, main academic coordinators of the topic area who act as the focal point for Members, help to promote the Theme activities and encourage 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. Themes are represented at our Main Meeting, our Topic Meetings and new H3 symposia.

The Main Meeting, Topic Meetings and H3 symposia are organised by the Society and take place throughout the year. These lively and informative events feature research presentations covering various 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.
