The Physiological Society, the Scandinavian Physiological Society, the Deutsche Physiologische Gesellschaft and the Federation of European Physiological Societies organised its first Europhysiology conference from 14 – 16 September, 2018 in London. Two students attended and presented poster communications. Rebecca Wilding (Year 3 Biomedical Sciences) obtained a Physiological Society travel grant and presented a poster on respiratory physiology, which she completed in collaboration with Eleanor Richards (a Nuffield Foundation placement student) and Mike Thynne (Chest Clinic, Derriford Hospital). She completed this work during a summer bursary paid for by the School of Biomedical Sciences and worked with Feisal Subhan. Faouzi Benterkia (a Biomedical Science graduate) presented work related to fasting and autonomic function. Together with Kashif Ali (also a Biomedical Science graduate), they conducted this project during a summer bursary paid for by the School of Biomedical Sciences and worked with Feisal Subhan. We are proud that both students successfully presented their work to international experts at Europhysiology2018 and contributed to it being a huge success. The organisers look forward to seeing us again in Berlin in 2020!
