The Physiological Society
DescriptionPhysiology is the science of how humans and other animals function in an integrated way and is the basis for many biological and clinical sciences. The Society supports research to advance the understanding of physiology and disease, as well as education and public engagement to develop an informed society. The charitable purposes of The Society are to support and sustain the discipline of physiology through the advancement of science and education and thereby the advancement of human and animal health. The benefits provided by The Society are in the form of: the publication of scientific journals; the holding of meetings and conferences to disseminate advances in physiology; the provision of educational resources to support the understanding and encourage the study of physiology; the provision of grants to support attendance at scientific meetings and the promotion of the importance of physiology to the public, through free public lectures and other outreach activities to provide an insight into how basic research translates directly to improving human health. We support our Members who conduct research, providing that this is within the principles of UK and European legislation. The beneficiaries of The Society include those involved in research, teaching or studying physiology in universities, industry, colleges and schools. Members of the public who wish to learn more about physiology are beneficiaries and all will ultimately benefit from physiological advances that promote health and treat disease. Further beneficiaries are other charities promoting science, education and health.
