A Message from the President of the Iowa Physiological Society:
The 22nd annual meeting of the Iowa Physiological Society (IPS) will be held on September 29-30th, 2017 at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City. The theme of the conference is entitled ‘Advances in Cardiovascular, Renal & Metabolic Functions in Health & Disease’.
We encourage participation from students (undergraduates, graduates), trainees and postdoctoral fellows, scientists, clinicians, and educators interested in physiological sciences/related disciplines from colleges/universities in Iowa and neighboring states. Our objective is to facilitate exchange of scientific ideas/knowledge; promote career development and networking opportunities; and strongly encourage participation by students, minorities and women.
This event will be highlighted by keynote research presentations; the IPS Lifetime Achievement Award; a workshop on diverse career opportunities for students/trainees; a workshop on advantages of using radiotelemetry in research; short talks by early-career investigators; and abstract-based poster & oral sessions. Awards will be given to best presentations in undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral levels. Visit the menu links above to learn more about the various aspects of the Meeting.
On behalf of the IPS Executive Board & the University of Iowa Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to this exciting regional event!
