The Physiological Society; here to support your career in life sciences

As a graduate of physiology or the life sciences, a learned society can provide the support needed to further your career. Our affiliate membership, designed for anyone enrolled in post-graduate studies in a physiology, biomedical or life sciences discipline has a wealth of benefits to support you.

The Physiological Society brings together over 3600 scientists from over 60 countries. Since its foundation in 1876, its Members have made significant contributions to our knowledge of biological systems and the treatment of disease.

We promote physiology and support those working in the field by organising world-class scientific meetings, offering grants for research, collaboration and international travel, and by publishing the latest developments in our leading scientific journals, The Journal of Physiology, Experimental Physiology and Physiological Reports.

Membership offers you

Opportunities to meet senior and established researchers in your field, at networking and society meetings; our Early Career networking events have speeches from senior researchers on how to get started, secure funding and make the most of your membership. Our world-class society meetings are a chance to present your work, meet experts in your chosen area and hear from the best.
