AuPS is the professional association for Australian physiologists which was founded in 1960.

Physiology is a key life science essential to our understanding of how humans and animals function.

With the increasing specialisation of biomedical research, physiology provides an essential framework within which new knowledge of cells and molecules can be applied to improving human health.

Key Objectives of AuPS are:

  • To promote the advancement of the science of Physiology
  • The encouragement of all aspects of research and teaching in this discipline
  • The general dissemination of knowledge of this and related disciplines
