The Physiological Society


BNA2021 supported session: 
Targeting ion channels in disease


As the largest network of physiologists in Europe, with academic journals of global reach, we continue our 140-year tradition of being at the forefront of the life sciences. We bring together over 4000 scientists from over 60 countries, and our Members have included numerous Nobel Prize winners from Ivan Pavlov to John O’Keefe.

The Society is organised into seven Themes, which allow like-minded subdisciplines to network together via tailored events and newsletters. Our Neuroscience Theme brings together scientists who study the nervous system at all levels, from ion channels to single cells and whole brain areas. It spans a wide range of interests including brain development, motor control, and sensory functions. This Theme promotes research into the healthy nervous system as well as various neurological conditions such as dementia, epilepsy, and stroke.

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 is available for all career stages, from undergraduates to senior-level scientists.  The Society was one of the first member bodies to sign the Science Council Declaration on Diversity, and is committed to promoting a diverse scientific workforce.
