Joint congress of DPG, SPS, TPS and FEPS in London September 13th to 16th 2018.


The idea of the German Physiological Society (DPG) emerged during the 75th congress of the society of German natural scientists and physicians in 1903 in the city of Kassel and was established in 1904 in Breslau by its founding board member Karl Hürthle.

DPG promotes research and teaching in all fields of physiology. It is an interdisciplinary society where physicians, biologists, chemists and physicists account for the majority of its 800 members.

The annual meeting with symposia, lectures and poster sessions is hold every year in March at the residency of the respective first meeting executive, including special symposia of the (presently) six workgroups on several areas of expertise.

WIR - Die Jungen Physiologen

Vielfach wird vom Zurückgehen des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses in der Physiologie gesprochen. Um diesem Trend entgegenzuwirken, haben wir die „Jungen Physiologen“ ins Leben gerufen.
