"In physiology, as in all other sciences, no discovery is useless, no curiosity misplaced or too ambitious, and we may be certain that every advance achieved in the quest of pure knowledge will sooner or later play its part in the service of man." — Ernest Henry Starling

About the Meeting
The theme of the meeting will be “Comparative Approaches to Grand Challenges in Physiology.” Comparative physiology takes advantage of the diverse evolutionary histories and ecological settings of animals. By definition, comparative physiology is broad, spanning a variety of animal taxa occurring in diverse environmental settings, and studied at many levels of biological organization (from molecular physiology to physiological ecology). This breadth allows comparative physiology to (a) understand basic physiological processes and (b) identify novel mechanisms used by animals to solve specific physiological challenges.
This meeting will draw comparative and evolutionary physiologists from around the world to present and discuss recent advances in animal physiology. The three and a half day meeting will feature 15 symposia, 2 plenary lectures, 2 workshops, and multiple sessions for volunteered abstracts as either oral or poster presentations. This meeting will include the 2014 Scholander Award competition for young comparative physiologists, a best poster competition, as well as several travel awards.
