About the American Physiological Society


Physiology is the study of how molecules, cells, tissues, and organs function in health and disease. Established in 1887, the APS was the first US society in the biomedical sciences field. The Society represents more than 11,000 members and publishes 14 peer-reviewed journals with a worldwide readership.
