The Gulf Coast Physiological Society (GCPS) was founded in 1999 as a professional association of physiologists in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. It was established to foster collaborative interactions related to research and education and to develop and nurture greater interest in the physiological sciences among faculty and students in related undergraduate programs. One of the goals of GCPS is to develop outreach programs to the many undergraduate programs facilitating recruitment of undergraduate students into physiology.
It is my great pleasure to announce the 7th Gulf Coast Physiological Society (GCPS) Meeting to be held at the Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel in downtown Mobile, AL, May 31-June 1, 2013. This meeting is sponsored by the American Physiological Society and is hosted this year by the University of South Alabama College of Medicine.
The purpose of the Gulf Coast Physiology Society Meeting is to foster collaborative interactions related to research and education, and to develop and nurture greater interest in the physiological sciences among faculty, students, and postdoctoral fellows in the Gulf Coast region. The meeting is also intended to showcase the trainees and early career investigators who conduct physiological research in the Gulf Coast Region.
This year’s meeting will feature two fantastic Keynote Speakers: Dr. David Busija from Tulane University School of Medicine and Dr. Tim Moore from NHLBI, National Institutes of Health. An overriding theme for the meeting is “The Prospective Role of the Physiologist in Translational Medical Research”. This will offer a spectacular forum for multi-discipline scientific interactions and discussions, including career development and planning for future research challenges and opportunities.
