The Indiana Physiological Society exists to promote the increase of physiological knowledge, its dissemination, and its utilization in the State of Indiana.  Advancing the field of physiology will be sought in molecular, cellular, organ, and integrative systems in basic and applied disciplines of research to unite physiologists in Indiana.

We ask that you encourage all your colleagues and students to join the chapter.  We are particularly interested in recruiting undergraduate and high school students who do not typically attend national meetings.  If you know any high school teachers and their students who are involved in upper-level courses such as Anatomy/Physiology, please invite them to join us for the next chapter meeting.  To add people to our mailing list, send an email to indiana.physiological.society@gmail.com.  Please include names, email addresses, phone numbers, and workplace mailing addresses.
