   Mr. Chedd is a visiting professor at the Alan Alda Center at Stony Brook University. He is the producer of all of Alan Alda’s science shows on PBS, including 11 seasons of Scientific American Frontiers and the mini-series The Human Spark and Brains on Trial. Read his full bio.

The symposium is open to all EB attendees. We'll see you there!

Physiology is the study of how molecules, cells, tissues and organs function in health and disease. Established in 1887, the American Physiological Society (APS) was the first U.S. society in the biomedical sciences field. The Society represents more than 10,500 members and publishes 15 peer-reviewed journals with a worldwide readership.
