Corporate and Foundation Support
Partner with APS to demonstrate your organization’s support for physiology!
We encourage organizations (private foundations and corporations) to consider supporting APS program areas that are in line with their funding interests. Our programmatic areas include Education & Diversity, Career & Research Development, International Affairs, and Science Policy & Public Outreach.
- The William Townsend Porter Foundation has provided funds for the Porter Physiology Development Fellowship for over 50 years.
- The S&R Foundation has supported the Ryuji Ueno Award since 2007 – an award given annually to an individual demonstrating outstanding promise based on his/her research in wound healing, tissue remodeling, and/or organ regeneration.
- Novo Nordisk Fonden supports the Novel Disease Model Awards – awards given to pre- and post-doctoral trainees who submit the best abstract describing a disease model at our annual meeting.
Interested? Please see our list of current program support opportunities.
There are abundant opportunities to sponsor lectures and other events at our annual meeting giving your organization visibility to 10,000 physiologists and more than 10,000 other researchers in the field of experimental biology. We also have some new opportunities for our other meetings throughout the year.
- Sucampo AG has supported APS’ opening lecture, The Walter B. Cannon Memorial Lecture, at our annual meeting since 2010.
- Novo Nordisk Fonden has supported The August Krogh Distinguished Lectureship since 2010.

Recognition Levels and Benefits
APS recognizes contributions yearly on our Donor Recognition page (by late January), in the March issue of The Physiologist, and in our annual report.
Benefits of major corporate support will be developed in cooperation with the corporate sponsor and will be consistent with the level of support and APS’s mission and purposes. APS will seek to develop opportunities that are appropriate and meaningful for both the sponsor and the Society.
